Are You Ready to #GetThingsDone?

In 1994, AmeriCorps started helping communities across America. Twenty years later, more than 830,000 people have served more than one billion hours to strengthen the nation.

Five years ago, the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act made it possible for even more Americans to get things done.

Now it’s your turn.

Do you want to help a kid succeed in school? Or protect a national forest? Or help a family rebuild their home after a devastating disaster?

When you join AmeriCorps, you use your energy, ideals, and talents to help others. Plus, you’ll earn money for education, learn to be a leader, and gain real job skills.

Share our brand-new PSA on Facebook, RT from Twitter and like on Instagram with your friends, family, and anyone else who is ready to #GetThingsDone.

Two AmeriCorps members discover a small turtle while working to clear man-made debris from a local pond. Mitigating human impact on the natural environment plays a big role in protecting wildlife habitats. By removing trash and other man-made debris from the pond, AmeriCorps Cape Cod members are able to restore the habitat to its original state and improve the water quality for animals who live in it.

AmeriCorps Cape Cod members Victoria Brisson and Adam Hansen help move oysters to the Little River in Mashpee, where the oysters will be able to grow freely. Shellfish such as these are vital to maintaining clean waterways on Cape Cod, which improves water quality for residents in the town by reducing nitrogen levels. In addition to shellfish propagation projects, AmeriCorps is helping conduct the first multi-year shellfish population survey on Cape Cod, in the town of Chatham.
