AMERICORPS IN NEBRASKA

Americorps Nebraska logo. Nebraska is fortunate to benefit from the dedicated efforts of talented individuals devoting themselves to addressing our state's most pressing needs through AmeriCorps. AmeriCorps members serve at local non-profit or governmental organizations which have applied for and received for competitive grants. The benefit is further extended through volunteers mobilized and trained by AmeriCorps members. Additionally, many of the recipient organizations engage other community partners as service sites for AmeriCorps members. Learn more by checking out the programs below or beginning with a snapshot of national service in Nebraska.
