AmeriCorps is the national service program that engages Americans of all ages and backgrounds in meeting critical education, public safety, environmental, and other human needs. Each year, we provide funds to programs operated by non-profit organizations, local government agencies, and institutions of higher education to support projects such as tutoring children, restoring streams and parks, building playgrounds and housing, assisting elders, and serving in health clinics. For more information about the activities we support, visit our web site: www.nationalservice.org.
