Volunteer Florida administers AmeriCorps programs throughout the state. AmeriCorps is a national service program that provides opportunities for individuals to serve their communities in many different capacities. In exchange for a living stipend, educational award and valuable on-the-job experience, members work in nonprofit organizations, educational foundations and government agencies for one year, helping mentor at-risk students, train job-seekers and conserve public land, among other things.

AmeriCorps funding is made available by the federal agency AmeriCorps and is administered by Volunteer Florida. AmeriCorps members are selected and managed by their host organization, and spend a year addressing issues critical to the organization’s mission. Full-time AmeriCorps members serve 35-40 hours per week.
