Members of all ages join us from all over the country and the local area to make a difference for students, families, and communities in need. People join for several different reasons-- to give back to the community and country, explore the education or nonprofit fields, or gain some "real-world experience." You won't get rich by doing AmeriCorps, but the rewards are substantial.
While giving back and serving communities is its own rewards AmeriCorps has many benefits of service which include student loan deferment, living allowance (or stipend), Education Award, health options, and many more.
