Expanding Economic Opportunity

#21- Expanding Economic Opportunity
Years Served: 

One of the major objectives of national service is to expand economic opportunity for more Americans. This service can take many forms: AmeriCorps and Senior Corps members have helped thousands of tax filers reclaim millions in refunds through free tax preparation services; AmeriCorps VISTA members follow their poverty-fighting creed to improve lives through community capacity-building and organizing efforts; Senior Corps volunteers offer much-needed service to support independent living; and CNCS formed the Employers of National Service initiative to help AmeriCorps alumni find employment after they complete their service terms.
