Bringing out the best of America

AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a big difference in your life
and in the lives of those around you.

It’s a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others and meeting critical needs in the community, and in return gain experience in skills that employers look for – like teamwork, leadership, communication skills, multicultural awareness, and flexible problem-solving. Each year, AmeriCorps offers 75,000 opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to serve through a network of partnerships with local and national nonprofit groups. Compensation includes a living allowance, education award, student loan forbearance, student loan interest payment and mileage reimbursement. AmeriCorps terms typically align with the school year, but can have opportunities year round. Please check below for current opportunities.

Schools of Hope: Led by United Way in partnership with AmeriCorps and the Madison and Sun Prairie School Districts, this project focuses on reading from kindergarten through fifth grade, specifically increasing reading achievement for students of color. Learn more about Schools of Hope here
