Every day, Ohioans are making extraordinary contributions to the communities where they live, work, and play. Learn more about the impact AmeriCorps members and volunteers have on the communities they serve, stay current on service and volunteerism trends, and be the first to know about upcoming funding opportunities, events, and special initiatives.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  And this month, across the state, there are several ways to engage with the community, including domestic violence education campaigns, outreach events, and memorial activities. We're also proud to partner with the Ohio Domestic Violence Network this year to launch a new AmeriCorps initiative, the Financial Freedom Corps. Learn more!


As schools start across the state, Ohio AmeriCorps members continue their work supporting Ohio’s K-12 students.  Fourteen education-focused AmeriCorps programs will engage hundreds of individuals to creatively connect with students to support them academically, emotionally, and socially during the pandemic.


Get Connected is ServeOhio’s new volunteer engagement platform and is the only statewide volunteer portal in Ohio. The site compiles volunteer engagement resources from across the state and helps volunteer engagement professionals recruit and manage volunteers for their organization. The best part - it's free!

Heather Foster is the Regional Administrator for the new Midwest Regional Office of the Corporation for National and Community Service. In this guest blog post, Heather discusses the launch of the new Regional Office, the impact of national service in the region, and how national service can act as a bridge across divides to unite Americans in a common effort and lift each other up.

Every year ServeOhio hosts a 2-3 day training to launch programs in to the new service year! This year things looked a little different though, transitioning the experience to a virtual platform instead of in person!
