About AmeriCorps NCCC
AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, team-based residential service program for 18-26 year-olds. AmeriCorps members serving in the NCCC program are assigned to one of four regional campuses and then placed into teams ranging between 8-12 members. The teams complete a variety of service projects, which are generally 3 to 13 weeks in duration, and respond to local communities’ needs throughout the United States and territories. Typical projects revolve around energy conservation, environmental stewardship, infrastructure improvement, natural disasters, and urban/rural development.
NCCC teams are also a potential resource when it comes to COVID-19 vaccination rollouts or staffing vaccination sites. NCCC members are not trained healthcare providers but could assist with COVID-19 vaccination efforts such as:
- Logistics and set up
- Crowd management support
- Observation post-vaccination
- Outreach and education
- Administrative follow up
