AmeriCorps Volunteer Generation Fund
Volunteer Generation Fund grants will be used to develop and/or support community-based entities to recruit, manage, and support volunteers. AmeriCorps seeks to fund effective approaches that expand volunteering, strengthen the capacity of volunteer connector organizations to recruit and retain skill-based volunteers, and develop strategies to use volunteers effectively to solve problems.In particular, AmeriCorps is looking to utilize these resources to support the entities interested in the National Partnership for Student Success. NPSS supports a nationwide three-year effort that brings together experienced organizations to recruit, screen, train, support, and engage an additional 250,000 caring adults in roles serving as tutors, mentors, student success coaches, wraparound service coordinators, and post-secondary transition coaches. Volunteer Generation Fund resources are made available as part of President’s Biden’s American Rescue Plan, and will help organizations meet this need.
