Oregon Volunteers invites new applicants that are interested in receiving a planning grant to design an AmeriCorps program, as well as renewal and continuing applicants, to respond to this Request For Applications (RFA).

All across the state, volunteers and national service participants help meet compelling community needs every day. Could national service help meet your organizational goals? Does your organization address one or more the following priority areas: Disaster, Economic Opportunity, Education, Environment, Veterans and Military Families?

Are you interested in one of our special initiatives: My Brother's Keeper, Multi-focus intermediaries, or Governor and Mayor Initiatives?

Join other organizations that have discovered the power of national service and develop a program that will involve friends and neighbors old and new in Getting Things Done for your community!

AmeriCorps National Direct Consultation

For national AmeriCorps programs serving Oregon

Organizations applying directly to the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to be a National Direct AmeriCorps program that serves in multiple states or territories are required to consult with the State/Territory Commission of each state and/or Territory in which the organization proposes to operate and must describe this consultation in their applications. Oregon Volunteers values this consultation as an opportunity to learn about your program, how we can support your program’s success in Oregon and how we can work together to create a national service identity among all programs serving the state or territory.

Oregon Volunteers’ consultation process requires you to complete a survey with key information about your program. Most of this information can be a summary of information you provide in your application to CNCS. Please complete the online survey here by January 30, 2015.

We look forward to learning about your program!

Thanks for celebrating the AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary with us!

On Friday, September 12, Oregon Volunteers hosted nearly 240 current and former AmeriCorps members, program staff, commissioners and other friends of AmeriCorps in Oregon for this celebration of twenty years of AmeriCorps service in Oregon and across the nation!

In the past twenty years, over 16,000 AmeriCorps members provided over 20 million hours of service to enrich the educational experiences of Oregon's children, increase access to healthcare for families, provide relief to victims of disaster, preserve the environment, build the capacity of community organizations and much, much more! We took this opportunity to salute these members and the dedicated staff and partners who supported them in their service.

Were you here with us or wish you could have been here?

Click here to see some photos of the event. We'll be posting some great audio and video of members, alums and friends sharing their AmeriCorps experiences as well as video footage of the event program soon!
