AmeriCorps is a national network of service programs. It receives federal funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). Three primary programs make up AmeriCorps:
- AmeriCorps NCCC, which places teams of young people ages 18-24 in communities to address immediate issues related to natural disasters;
- AmeriCorps VISTA, which places members in communities to focus on fighting poverty; and
- AmeriCorps State and National, which places members with cohorts to address community needs through diverse projects.
Currently, more than 75,000 Americans across the country are serving their communities in programs that focus on disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship and healthy futures.
4-H STEAM Corps is an AmeriCorps*State program and 4-H STEAM Corps members join more than 600 other AmeriCorps members serving throughout Michigan in a variety of programs.
