IYT and AmeriCorps
AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year. Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 1 million AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1.4 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing more than 2.3 million volunteers for the organizations they serve.
When you think of AmeriCorps, think of the Peace Corps – but in your own backyard. AmeriCorps is a civil society program supported by the U.S. federal government, foundations, corporations and other donors engaging adults in public service work with a goal of “helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.”
AmeriCorps members make a difference in their community and gain valuable experience for their next job or graduate school endeavor. When you serve with College Possible you help make a college degree possible for low-income students. We offer a variety of service opportunities for college graduates, ranging from working directly with students to writing grants to coordinating events.
