Agencies & Departments : 
Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS)

Application Deadline: June 8, 2017
This opportunity allows organizations to leverage funding from outside sources, permits the flexibility to engage youth as young as 14 years of age in national service, and allows for a new 100-hour service term. After launching the pilot in 2016, CNCS is now expanding AmeriCorps Affiliate and will consider additional requests to designate positions as National Service Positions. AmeriCorps Affiliate designations are intended to use national service as a means to incubate and expand service opportunities to create self-sustaining service models that complement existing AmeriCorps programs. A technical assistance call will be held at 2:00 p.m. ET on May 10, 2017. CNCS strongly encourages applicants to submit a Notification of Intent to Apply to be an AmeriCorps Affiliate. Learn more.
