Established in 1994, CAC AmeriCorps is a national service program that combines elements of traditional conservation practice with community action that informs our work and places it in the broader context of the region. CAC AmeriCorps members work to improve public lands, streams and greenways, educate the public, meet immediate human needs through disaster response, eliminate barriers to employment, contribute to healthier lifestyles and build volunteer capacity to enhance the ability of our partners to get things done. We are committed to human and environmental justice in our communities through enduring acts of service. Learn more about our CAC AmeriCorps and CAC AmeriCorps VISTA programs.
