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.
