AmeriCorps Students In Service
What is Students in Service (SIS)?
The Students in Service program is a part-time AmeriCorps program that encourages and supports college and university students to enroll as part-time AmeriCorps members who provide valuable service in their communities. SIS members make a difference in their communities; gain valuable civic and workforce skills; and upon completion of their term of service, earn an education award.
By participating in the Students in Service program, the member becomes a part of the AmeriCorps national service network that improves lives and strengthens communities throughout the United States of America.
