Yes, there are three main branches of AmeriCorps: AmeriCorps State & National, AmeriCorps*VISTA, and AmeriCorps*NCCC.
AmeriCorps Network (AmeriCorps State & National) consists of local, regional, and national organizations who are committed to using national service to address critical community needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment.
AmeriCorps VISTA members have served economically challenged communities for more than 35 years. The program is dedicated to increasing the capability of people to improve the conditions of their own lives. Members of AmeriCorps VISTA serve full-time and live in the communities they serve, creating programs that can continue after they complete their service.
AmeriCorps NCCC is a ten-month, full-time residential service program for men and women ages eighteen to twenty-four. Members help meet the nation’s critical needs in the areas of education, public safety, the environment, and other human needs. AmeriCorps NCCC combines the best practices of civilian service with the best aspects of military service, including leadership and team building.
