AmeriCorps NCCC is a full-time, 10-moth, 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 $5,775 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.
