ServeOhio Administers AmeriCorps in Ohio
ServeOhio creates opportunities for individuals to participate in an immersive service experience by partnering with local nonprofits, public agencies, and community organizations to develop high-impact AmeriCorps programs that address the local community's most critical needs in education, economic opportunity, health, and environmental stewardship. Through this unique state-local partnership, ServeOhio is able to address local needs while also providing a valuable service experience for the AmeriCorps member – building skills, increasing employment opportunities, and reducing higher-education debt for thousands of Ohioans. In the current program year, ServeOhio supports 900 AmeriCorps members who will give 1.2 million hours of service at 500+ service sites across the state and will earn $4.3 million in education awards.
Funding for the AmeriCorps program comes from the federal AmeriCorps Agency.
