What is AmeriCorps? How does it support the American Red Cross?
AmeriCorps engages service minded Americans in intensive community outreach each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country.
Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 800,000 AmeriCorps members have contributed over 1 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve.
AmeriCorps members help achieve the American Red Cross mission by focusing on under resourced communities providing much needed services that community members may not be able to afford.
AmeriCorps members are dedicated to providing disaster preparedness education to underserved neighborhoods, schools, and communities and also responding to the needs of individuals and families when an emergency does occur. Additionally members engage the community with Red Cross health and safety programs including CPR, First Aid, emergency preparedness training, programming for individuals with physical and developmental disabilities, youth programs and more.
