AmeriCorps NCCC has training facilities in four locations throughout the country:
Aurora, CO (Southwest Region)
Sacramento, CA (Pacific Region)
Vicksburg, MS (Southern Region)
Vinton, IA (North Central Region)
To serve in the AmeriCorps NCCC program, applicants must be 18-26 years of age, be either citizens or lawful permanent residents of the U.S. and be willing to serve away from home for one year. There are two pathways to serve with NCCC: Traditional Corps and FEMA Corps.
In Traditional Corps, members serve for 10 months and perform a variety of direct, hands-on service projects, such as constructing and rehabilitating low-income housing, assisting with environmental conservation, helping communities respond to emergencies, leading youth development activities, and addressing other pressing local needs.
In FEMA Corps, young adults serve for 12 months and work directly with FEMA to gain professional skills in emergency management. Members serve primarily in an administrative capacity to support disaster preparedness, response, and recovery efforts; help coordinate services for disaster survivors; manage supply warehouses; and more.
AmeriCorps members serving in the NCCC Traditional Corps and FEMA Corps programs are assigned to one of our four regional campuses, placed into teams of 8-12 members, and complete three to six projects, of six to eight weeks in length, responding to local community needs across the U.S. Young adults grow personally and professionally, build relationships with individuals from diverse backgrounds, and position themselves for the next step in their career.
Reasonable Accommodations AmeriCorps NCCC welcomes qualified individuals with disabilities into the service program. AmeriCorps NCCC does not have blanket rules that exclude candidates with particular health conditions or disabilities. The agency will not tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, gender identification, age, disability, or genetic information in assessing a candidate's ability to serve. The agency will make a reasonable accommodation to a known disability of a qualified candidate if it will not impose an undue hardship on the operations of the NCCC campus or program.
