Description:
The Corporation annually engages more than five million Americans in service through its core programs, Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America, and leads President Obama’s national call to service initiative, United We Serve. As the nation’s largest grant maker for service and volunteering, the Corporation plays a critical role in strengthening America’s nonprofit sector and addressing our nation’s challenges through service. As our nation continues on the road to economic recovery, volunteer service plays a vital role in addressing our national and local challenges. Given the many social needs facing our communities– and the growing interest in service by Americans of all ages – this is a moment of unprecedented need and opportunity for the Corporation.
