Summer Opportunity AmeriCorps

Dear Friends of Service:

As summer approaches, many young people will take advantage of time between school years to gain skills and experience while also serving their communities.

We believe in our youth and look forward to supporting them as they serve their neighbors and communities.

Today, President Obama announced his Administration's plan to support young people across the country during the summer. 

As part of this initiative, which includes many public-private partnerships with local leaders, our agency is committing up to $15 million in college scholarships during the next three years to launch Summer Opportunity AmeriCorps.

We are collaborating with the National Summer Learning Association, other organizations, mayors, nonprofits, and other partners to develop service and service-learning projects that will enable up to 20,000 youth to gain new skills and earn money for college.

To learn more about our commitment and this new initiative, visit the Summer Opportunity AmeriCorps webpage, sign-up for more information, or email

Warmest Regards,

Wendy Spencer, CEO
Corporation for National and Community Service
