Corporation for National and Community Service

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) engages more than five million Americans in service through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, Learn and Serve America, and the Social Innovation Fund, and leads the call to service initiative, United We Serve. CNCS believes that caring and capable adult mentors can make a critical difference in the lives of children and youth in need. Participants in national service programs support mentoring by directly serving as mentors and by building the capacity of mentoring organizations through mentor recruitment and management, fundraising, and program administration. As a result of CNCS, hundreds and thousands of children and youth are mentored through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America each year.
