About National Service

Since 1910, Americans have participated in National Service in numerous ways. What began with the Civilian Conservation Corps, created by Franklin D. Roosevelt, has expanded into a network of national service programs throughout the United States, consisting of programs like the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps, AmeriCorps State & National, AmeriCorps VISTA, and the Senior Corps programs. Service members from each of these programs commit their time to addressing critical needs such as fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, assisting seniors, mentoring youth, and increasing academic success. Many thousands of Americans throughout the country participate in these programs each year to take on the responsibility of tackling different community needs in different ways.

MTCC hosts two distinct national service programs:

An AmeriCorps State program and an AmeriCorps VISTA program.
