I am more than me

Some AmeriCorps members aren't sure what they want to do after they complete the program. And there are plenty of members who consider AmeriCorps an important step in their career plan. Those who begin the program not knowing what they want to do, most 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.
