A Sampling of AmeriCorps Summer Programs

Summer Opportunities with AmeriCorps

AmeriCorps is comprised of three very different programs and volunteers should carefully read each description before making a decision to join. For those who are still unsure of which program is right for them after reading the descriptions, AmeriCorps offers an “interactive program selector” on their website. One of the nice benefits of being an AmeriCorps volunteer is that they offer students an opportunity to make money to pay for college or to help pay off student loans after graduation.

The usual commitment ranges from 9 to 12 months but there are also summer programs available; such as:

  1. Delaware Parks AmeriCorps Summer Program

  2. AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) Summer of Service

  3. YouthServe Americorps Program

Please check out the AmeriCorps website for new and exciting summer programs.
