AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) is a federal, national service program for 18- to 26-year-olds from diverse backgrounds, that strengthens communities and develops leaders through team-based national and community service. NCCC teams work on a variety of projects, each lasting up to the length of the round. Service areas include:
- Environmental Stewardship
- Urban and Rural Development
- Energy Conservation
- Infrastructure Improvement
- Disaster Response & Rebuilding
Nonprofit and faith-based organizations, government entities (federal, state and local), public schools and universities, and Native American Tribal Councils are all eligible to request NCCC teams. Organizations seeking to receive an NCCC team must submit a Project Concept Form to the Assistant Program Director (APD) for your state.
