Is your organization or community in need of dedicated individuals who want to make a difference?  You can apply now for a team just in time to get things done and accomplish your project goals!

Each year, AmeriCorps NCCC engages its teams in communities across the United States. Service projects, which typically last from six to eight weeks, address critical needs related to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. Our members have mentored students, constructed and rehabbed low-income housing, responded to natural disasters, cleaned up streams and watersheds, helped communities develop emergency plans, and addressed countless other local needs.

The Southern Region Campus of AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) is currently inviting potential project sponsors in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia including our new states and U.S. territories Connecticut, D.C., Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands to apply for our teams of developing leaders. The Southern Region Campus assigns teams to service projects lasting 6-8 weeks, to help communities meet their most compelling needs, and to develop the knowledge and leadership of our AmeriCorps members.
