Corporation for National and Community Service: Established in 1993, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is a federal agency that engages more than 5 million Americans in service through its core programs — Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and the Social Innovation Fund — and leads President Obama’s national call to service initiative, United We Serve.
As the nation’s largest grantmaker for service and volunteering, CNCS plays a critical role in strengthening America’s nonprofit sector and addressing our nation’s challenges through service. CNCS harnesses America’s most powerful resource – the energy and talents of our citizens – to solve problems. We believe that everyone can make a difference and that all of us should try. From grade school through retirement, CNCS empowers Americans and fosters a lifetime of service.
New York State Office of National & Community Services (New Yorkers Volunteer): The New York State Office of National & Community Service (NCS) is designated as the administrative agency for the Governor’s Commission on National and Community Service. In this role, NCS provides oversight to the AmeriCorps national service portfolio of programs for the State. In partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service, NCS supports training and networking opportunities for Senior Corps and VISTA national service programs. NCS also works closely with the New York State Education Department on service-learning initiatives, and other State Agencies that engage volunteers through their programming.
