If you'd like to help improve our community while learning new job skills and earning a stipend, you've come to the right place. Mesa United Way has teamed up with AmeriCorps, the federal program that encourages national and community service while providing valuable job training.
The benefits for participants and the community are enormous. Since Congress created the Corporation for National and Community Service in 1993, tens of thousands of individuals have been mobilized at every level - national, state and community - to help meet pressing needs, from cleaning up parks and neighborhoods to helping individuals get access to health care.
Mesa United Way and other Arizona organizations that utilize AmeriCorps participants work with the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith, and Family and the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism to ensure that targeted needs are addressed.
Service priorities include education, health care, the environment, veterans and economic opportunities. Explore our AmeriCorps program opportunities below.
