Learn About AmeriCorps National Direct Programs
AmeriCorps National Direct programs are administered directly from the federal level through the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) in partnership with organizations that operate at the national level, such as the Red Cross or The Boys and Girls Clubs.
CNCS grants funds to nonprofit organizations with a national focus and reach, and these organizations in turn use those funds to implement AmeriCorps National Direct programs through their local or regional offices. AmeriCorps National Direct programs strengthen citizenship and the ethic of service by engaging thousands of Americans on a full-time or part-time basis to help communities address their toughest challenges and meet local needs.
Although these programs are not administered through the Michigan Community Service Commission (MCSC), you can learn more about opportunities in Michigan by contacting (800) 942-2677 or (202) 606-5000 ext. 536 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
