Members running a shelter

For individuals who want to make a big difference through service in their communities, AmeriCorps offers the opportunity of a lifetime. During a year of service, AmeriCorps members receive powerful professional training, serve with dedicated teams of service leaders, and help to improve communities.

Benefits of Service

As an AmeriCorps member, you’ll be eligible for a variety of benefits that make the dedication of a year of your life worthwhile.

Living Stipend

AmeriCorps members receive a living stipend during their year of service. The dollar amount varies for each AmeriCorps program, and most AmeriCorps members have found that it covers their basic expenses.

Education Award

Most AmeriCorps members who successfully complete a term of AmeriCorps service are eligible to receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award.  Full-time members may be eligible to receive an education award of over $5,000 after completing their service.

In-State Tuition to Maryland College & Universities

Those who come from out-of-state to Maryland to serve in a Maryland AmeriCorps program are eligible for in-state tuition at Maryland public colleges and universities.

Professional Development

As an AmeriCorps member, you will gain valuable experience that translates directly into skills for future job opportunities. Many people find that their year of service as an AmeriCorps member provides them with more experience and skills than they would have gotten at a traditional job.
