A national service initiative, AmeriCorps is similar to the Peace Corps and is for those who want to commit to at least one year of service nationally, rather than internationally. Since its inception in 1994, more than 1 million AmeriCorps members have contributed over 1.4 billion hours in service to their country while leveraging millions of community volunteers. Local YWCA AmeriCorps members serve more than 60,000 hours each year benefiting the metro-Birmingham area, Shelby, Blount and St. Clair counties.
Partnering with AmeriCorps through the Alabama Governor’s Office of Volunteer Services and the Corporation for National and Community Service, YWCA Central Alabama and its partner agencies have been able to further change the lives of people in need and reshape the fabric of our community.
