AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs based on a public-private partnership founded in 1994 that engages more than 75,000 Americans in intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. All AmeriCorps programs are administered by the federal agency, The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). 

 

In 1994, the National AmeriCorps Association was founded by a small group of AmeriCorps alumni. It was incorporated as an independent 501(c)3 non-profit named AmeriCorps Alums in April 1997. Once a membership of 2,000, the association is now a robust movement of hundreds of thousands of AmeriCorps supporters. 

 

In 2004, the board of AmeriCorps Alums decided to pursue a merger to strengthen the organization's capacity and merged with Points of Light & HandsOn Network. And in 2018, Service Year Alliance - an organization dedicated to making a year of service a common expectation and opportunity - officially acquired AmeriCorps Alums. 

 

In each step of AmeriCorps Alums, it has been a step to bring the over one millionAmeriCorps supporters together to promote national service and continue local impact long after the alums’ service year. If you are an alum of national service, thank you for your service!
