Usually an organization applies to be the overarching site for AmeriCorps within your state and then organizations such as yours complete proposals to become a host site.  You will want to explore whether you want an AmeriCorps versus an AmeriCorps/VISTA member.  The allowed duties of each are different and the host site’s financial contribution is different.

Take care,

Hi Nikki,


I'm with Falls City Community BikeWorks, a community bike shop in Louisville KY. I was just wondering how you went about getting Americorps involved in your community bike shop/programs? Sounds like a great way to help get some things done!
