AmeriCorps is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service that engages Americans of all ages and backgrounds in service to help meet critical community needs. AmeriCorps members serve through thousands of nonprofit groups, public agencies and faith-based organizations across the country. They address areas of education, health, the environment, disaster services, veterans and economic opportunity. Since 2008, the Office of Civic Engagement & Leadership has partnered with the Maryland - D.C. Campus Compact to engage Towson University students, faculty, and staff in service to the community through AmeriCorps programs.

Students of Service

Students of Service is a part-time AmeriCorps program that provides scholarships and professional development opportunities to university students who commit to serving their community. Towson University students participating in this program help to increase academic achievement and community engagement among K-12 students by serving as mentors for one year. Learn more about this program.

AmeriCorps VISTA

AmeriCorps VISTA is a branch of AmeriCorps dedicated to creating and expanding programs that bring individuals and communities out of poverty. Each year, the Office of Civic Engagement & Leadership hosts a VISTA member who supports Towson University outreach programs that provide services and resources to the community. Towson University AmeriCorps VISTA members have served in the Cherry Hill Learning Zone and helped to develop service-learning programs that offer students opportunities to gain real-world experience and make a difference. Learn more about service-learning and find out how to get involved in Cherry Hill.
