AmeriCorps NCCC is a national service program that has teams of 18-24 year olds who can help communities meet their critical needs. We partner with a variety of nonprofit organizations, federal/state/local governmental agencies, and tribal organizations who design a service project typically lasting 6-8 weeks which address a compelling community need and then we can send in the people power behind that project. 

Some types of tasks NCCC teams have completed in the past include:

  • Energy Conservation: weatherizing existing homes or public infrastructure by insulating rim joists, caulking windows, conducting home energy audits and blower door tests, and conducting energy related educational programing.
  • Environmental Stewardship and Conservation: trail building, teaching environmental education classes for camps, cleaning up river systems and tasks that address climate change.
  • Urban and Rural Development: serving as camp counselors for summer camps, blight removal projects in cities and other neighborhood revitalization efforts, building homes with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, assisting with tax preparation, and building community gardens.
  • Infrastructure Improvement: repairing or maintaining public infrastructure such as city-owned fair and rodeo grounds, building public campsites, constructing wheelchair ramps and boardwalks.
  • Disaster: supporting COVID vaccination sites, packing/preparing/distributing disaster kits and educational materials; clean-up work after a disaster both in the terms of cleaning up or repairing homes after flooding as well as repairing trail systems after a wildfire.
