Americorps NCCC

Travel the Country. Earn Money for School. Change the World.

In AmeriCorps NCCC, dedicated teams of young adults give back to communities across the country while developing their own skills as leaders. They travel the U.S. for 10 months, providing service and relief to communities in need while earning a living stipend, full room and board, travel expenses and $5,775 towards school or qualified loans. AmeriCorps NCCC is comprised of two distinct service tracks. 

The traditional AmeriCorps NCCC track is a rugged and demanding service experience designed to strengthen communities and build America’s next generation of leaders. Teams complete direct, hands-on service projects like cleaning up after natural disasters, fighting wildfires, constructing homes, tutoring students, building trails in parks and forests, and more. They work in partnership with non-profits, local municipalities, state governments, federal government, national and state parks, Indian tribes, and schools. 

AmeriCorps NCCC’s FEMA Corps track is an immersive professional experience supporting active FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) projects that strengthen our nation’s capacity to prepare for and respond to disasters. Similar in experience to an internship, teams provide administrative and logistical support while delivering disaster prevention, response, and recovery services.
