AmeriCorps Program Provides Young Adults for Community Benefit Projects

Have you ever thought, if I only had more time or more people, I could do X? Need additional hands to get things done for your community? AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) has teams of young adults who can help communities meet their critical needs.

NCCC is a federal, team-based national service program for young adults between the ages of 18 and 24. Members serve a full-time, ten-month term, serving on projects, typically 6-8 weeks in length, to meet community needs in five main service areas: natural and other disasters, energy conservation, environmental stewardship and conservation, infrastructure improvement, and urban and rural development.
