About CORE Susquehanna AmeriCorps
AmeriCorps is the national service program that provides thousands of Americans of all ages and backgrounds with education awards and other benefits in exchange for a year or two of community service. AmeriCorps members help meet the nation’s critical needs in the areas of public safety, education, human needs, and the environment.
CORE Susquehanna AmeriCorps was established in 1994 as a project of the Union-Snyder Community Action Agency, located in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. AmeriCorps, also referred to as the ‘Domestic Peace Corps’, has its roots in the long tradition of service opportunities that includes the Civilian Conservation Corps, the GI Bill, the Peace Corps, VISTA, and the Points of Light Foundation.
CORE Susquehanna AmeriCorps is a state program directly supervised by the state commission, PennSERVE. The Corporation for National Service, the umbrella agency for all such state programs, supports a range of service opportunities. These programs are funded by Congress and other support from local and private sector partners.
