 Are you interested in traveling the country and earning money for school while helping communities in need? If so, AmeriCorps NCCC may be for you. 

AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) is a residential national service program for men and women between the ages of 18 and 24. For 10 months, members serve on teams to meet urgent community needs in disaster relief, the environment, energy conservation, infrastructure improvement, and urban and rural development. Teams work on projects throughout the country with non-profit programs, state and local agencies, and other community and faith-based groups. 

Members are stationed at one of five campuses, located in Denver, CO, Sacramento, CA, Baltimore, MD, Vicksburg, MS, and Vinton, IA. During the 10 month term of service they will complete a variety of 6- to 8-week-long projects throughout the multi-state region served by their assigned campus. 

AmeriCorps NCCC members are provided with housing, food, health benefits, transportation to projects, and qualified student loan forbearance. They earn a modest living stipend of about $200 every two weeks, before taxes are withheld. Upon successful completion of the program, they also earn a $5,730 education award that can be applied to future schooling or to pay off existing qualified student loans. 

If you are team-oriented and not afraid to get moving, get dirty, and have a little fun, visit our website and apply today: www.americorps.gov/nccc  

To begin a term of service in the fall, apply by April 1. To begin a term of service in the winter, apply by October 1.
