What’s AmeriCorps? AmeriCorps is a network of local, state, and national service programs connecting over 75,000 Americans each year through non-profits, schools, public agencies, communities, and faith-based groups. AmeriCorps is an opportunity for individuals of all ages and backgrounds to come together, dedicating their time and skills to get things done!

As a year-round program, Easterseals Wisconsin AmeriCorps Partnership strives to provide members an opportunity to gain hands-on experience providing direct care for youth and adults with disabilities, facilitate therapeutic- based programs, and build upon leadership skills within a camp and community setting. A term of AmeriCorps allows members to build upon professional development and highlight their experience towards future career pathways.
