AmeriCorps is a network of local, state, and national service programs that connects more than 85,000 Americans each year in intensive service to meet our country's critical needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment.
AmeriCorps members serve with more than 3,300 nonprofits, public agencies, and faith-based and community organizations. Since 1994, more than 637,000 men and women have provided needed assistance to millions of Americans across the nation through their AmeriCorps service.
The AmeriCorps programs at Springfield College are supported in part by the Massachusetts Service Alliance, the Corporation for National and Community Service, the U.S. Department of Education, the Funder Collaborative for Reading Success, and the Irene E. and George A. Davis Foundation. Serving as the state commission on community service, the Massachusetts Service Alliance generates an ethic of service throughout the Commonwealth by creating and supporting diverse, high-quality service and volunteer opportunities for all age groups, resulting in stronger communities and more active citizens.
