AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs, made up of three primary programs that each take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement. Members commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more.

  • Do you need to build capacity at your organization?
  • Do you have a special project that you have been dreaming of that you know will have a positive impact on the community and you just need a key person to help get that done?
  • Do you need a team of individuals to deliver direct services that are not currently being met in your community?

Please join us if your organization or agency is in need of volunteers to help meet community needs!

RSVP to WA@CNS.GOV and include which day(s) you plan to attend and the number of people attending.
