AmeriCorps is a component of the National Service Network. Its goal is to engage Americans
of all ages and backgrounds in service to help meet communities' critical education,
public safety, environmental, and other human needs. AmeriCorps is often referred
to as the "Domestic Peace Corps."
AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a big difference in your life and in the lives of those around you. It's a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.
NWF Environmental Stewards AmeriCorps program is a competitive state funded grant through Volunteer Florida (the Governor's Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service), whom receives funding support from the Corporation for National & Community Service.

Volunteer Florida provides necessary oversight and accountability of these grants through its Commission and staff.
