What is National Service?

The Corporation for National and Community Service engages more than 5 million Americans in service each year through Senior Corps and AmeriCorps, helping the nonprofits they serve expand their reach and impact. 


AmeriCorps members may serve through one of three types of AmeriCorps programs. While the majority of AmeriCorps positions are a one year commitment, part-time and summer positions may be available. 



Senior Corps  connects individuals age 55+ with the people and organizations that need them most. Conceived during John F. Kennedy's presidency, Senior Corps currently links more than 360,000 Americans to service opportunities. Senior Corps volunteers may serve through one of three types of programs.
