I am more than me

There are many people who consider AmeriCorps an important step in their career plan. Those who begin the program not knowing what they want to do get a much better sense of their career goals after completing their term of service.

  • Because AmeriCorps members work at schools and with non-profit organizations, it's a great way to network with people in those worlds.
  • Many community leaders started out as AmeriCorps members themselves.
  • It’s also a great stepping stone for a government career because it demonstrates a passion for and a commitment to public service.
