Since 1994, AmeriCorps Members have served our country and our communities with commitment and spirit.

Not only do AmeriCorps Members give back through direct service, they are leading change in the communities and organizations they serve.  Programs like the Indiana Financial Capability Corps (IFCC) give Hoosiers the opportunity to transform lives and improve neighborhoods through education and empowerment – and the chance to grow as leaders.  Members add value to host sites by bringing their diverse backgrounds to bear in their assignments, leaving an indelible mark on beneficiaries and groups with whom they interact.   

AmeriCorps Members serve from three months to one year in part- or full-time positions while earning a living allowance and an end of service education award all while gaining valuable professional development and skills. 

According to the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency which funds AmeriCorps, eighty-two percent (82%) of host sites surveyed hired at least one Member since 2012.  Forty-two percent (42%) of alumni employed within six months found a job through a connection made during their term of service.  Eight out of ten alumni say that AmeriCorps benefited their career path.  And, most importantly, Members have higher rates of civic engagement than their contemporaries who chose other non-national service paths.
