Make a lasting impact in your community while earning money for college.
Hands On Nashville is currently recruiting local college-aged students to serve as AmeriCorps members during the 2024-2025 school year. As an AmeriCorps member, you will help engage volunteers and new supporters for a local nonprofit, while adding marketable skills to your resume.
During the term, you will serve 15 or 20 hours per week, receive a semi-monthly living allowance, and earn an education award after you complete the required number of service hours.
2023-2024 Host Sites
The Hands On Nashville AmeriCorps program helps Nashville-area nonprofit organizations build their capacity to meet critical community needs through outreach and volunteer engagement, while also developing a new generation of nonprofit professionals.
Host Sites mentor an AmeriCorps member throughout the term. Most members who serve in the program are college-aged young adults who are looking for their first professional experience. This program is designed to help nonprofits succeed, while members develop their skill sets in a supportive environment. Service mentors provide supervision, one-on-one support, professional development, and guidance that help each member positively impact the program they serve.
The Hands On AmeriCorps Program is made possible through generous support from Volunteer Tennessee, local grants, and AmeriCorps, the federal agency connecting individuals and organizations through service and volunteering to tackle the nation's most pressing challenges.
Each AmeriCorps participant is part of a National Service cohort that builds nonprofit capacity through a partnership between Hands On Nashville and participating AmeriCorps host sites. Members receive skills training, professional development, and networking opportunities throughout their yearlong term.
