National Volunteer Opportunities

AmeriCorps & FEMA Corps

AmeriCorps State & National, AmeriCorps NCCC and FEMA Corps are all amazing ways to spend a gap year or two while gaining funds and experience applicable to college or a future career. From the education award which goes directly to paying for college expenses (which many universities will match) to real world job skills a year (or two) of national service can help launch you into your future.
