About NCCC

The AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps is a full-time residential program for men and women, ages 18-24, which strengthens communities while developing leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. Organizations may apply to host a team of AmeriCorps NCCC members to provide intensive, short term service on projects in the areas of disaster services, environment, infrastructure improvement, energy conservation and urban and rural development. Projects are normally six to eight weeks in duration but will vary depending on the requirements of the project. Organizations must be capable of utilizing at least one full team of eight to twelve members effectively and support their housing and meals. Rhode Island is currently served by the Southern Region Campus in Mississippi.
