Member Service and Volunteerism
The service ethic is a big part of the CCC and corpsmembers are encouraged to help out in local communities. Most members devote many hours to volunteer activities and find it personally rewarding.
Volunteering in their local communities offers young people a chance to give back. Corpsmember Advisory Boards and CCC centers regularly get involved in weekend activities that assist federal, state and local nonprofit groups in their area. This member service and volunteerism is also a requirement for CCC and AmeriCorps scholarships.
CCC alumni also know that volunteering is a great way to gain experience and future employment opportunities after the Corps. Alumni frequently comment that they began volunteering while in the Corps, and continue to make time for community service.
Below is a list of websites and agencies the CCC frequently partners with to develop volunteer projects:
