AmeriCorps is a National Service movement with roots in the Peace Corps and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). AmeriCorps provides thousands of Americans of all ages and backgrounds with an opportunity to address pressing community needs by completing a year of service. In exchange for their service, AmeriCorps members receive a small living allowance and an education award.

The American Red Cross State Preparedness Corps is comprised of 35 full-time and part-time AmeriCorps members. Throughout their term of service, these members increase individual and community disaster preparedness; coordinate efforts to support the Red Cross' capacity to respond to disasters; recruit, support and engage community volunteers; and coordinate community collaboration opportunities between local businesses, non-profit and community organizations.
