AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, 10-month, residential national service program in which young adults - all 18-24 years old - serve nationwide each year. The NCCC program oversees two service tracks - traditional NCCC and FEMA Corps. Members of both tracks of programming serve on teams of eight to twelve and to a series of different projects that address critical needs. Traditional NCCC members work on a variety of different six to eight week-long projects related to natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental stewardship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. In exchange for their service, members receive money to help pay for college, or to pay back existing student loans. Other benefits include travel, a small living stipend, room and board, and professional development. See website for more information.
