Since 1994, more than 1 million Americans have given 1.3 billion hours of service through AmeriCorps. Some of their stories are at this link.

In communities across New Jersey, AmeriCorps/VISTA volunteers are active meeting these and other pressing needs. Some members serve full-time to fight hunger and illiteracy, improve health services, and increase housing opportunities. These young men and women, 18 to 24, commit to a 10-month, full time residential program for this purpose, establishing an early connection to service and its critical importance to them and to the people they serve.
