What is the National Civilian Community Corps? (AmeriCorps NCCC)

Mission: To strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. In partnership with nonprofit organizations, state and local agencies, and faith-based and other community organizations, members complete service projects throughout the region they are assigned.

What Does It Do?: AmeriCorps NCCC teams are assigned 3-5 service projects throughout their 10 month service term, primarily in the 8-10 states within that region. Service projects help to meet critical community needs in the areas of natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. Teams are available to support community and faith-based based organizations, national nonprofits, schools, local-, regional-, and federal municipalities, national and state parks, and Native American and Alaskan Native tribes.

Where Is It?: One of the programs of CNCS, AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), is a full-time, residential, national service program whose mission is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. Each year hundreds of young adults, ages 18-24, serve for 10 months as NCCC members on diverse teams of 8 to 12 people at one of five regional campuses.

How Does My Organization Get Involved?: Do you have projects that you’ve been trying to complete for a long time or a special project that you could use assistance completing? Could the energy of a team of 8-10 young adults help you complete them? AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) is a full time team based national service program. We work with non-profit organizations, state and local agencies, and Indian tribes to complete projects that typically last 6 – 8 weeks. Members in the past have tutored students, constructed low-income housing, built and repaired trails, managed community volunteers, and worked on disaster preparedness, relief and recovery projects. Attached is our request for proposal that has some additional information about AmeriCorps NCCC and explains how to apply for a team. We are currently accepting applications for 2018. A Request For Proposals and Application materials are attached or can be obtained from Jody Burns at 202-409-6556 or jburns@cns.gov. Have a great day!
