AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, 10 month, residential, national service program with 2,800 young adults – all 18 to 24 year old – serve nationwide every year. The NCCC program oversees two service tracks – NCCC and FEMA corps – and members in these programs serve in teams of eight to twelve on three to seven projects during their service. NCCC members serve on projects that address critical needs related to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. FEMA corps members focus solely on emergency management and long-term recovery projects through FEMA.
Members are assigned to one of five NCCC campuses in the United States. The campus locations are Denver, CO; Sacramento, CA; Vinton, IA; Baltimore, MD; and Vicksburg, MS. I am located at the North Central Region campus in Vinton, which serves Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
In exchange for their service, members receive $7,775 to help pay for college, or pay back existing student loans. Other benefits include travel, small living stipend, room and board, leadership development, increased self-confidence, and the knowledge that, through active citizenship, people can indeed make a difference. AmeriCorps NCCC is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service. For more information about AmeriCorps NCCC programs, visit our website at www.nationalservice.gov/nccc.
