Christian Appalachian Project (CAP) proudly partners with AmeriCorps to receive full-time members who serve alongside CAP staff to engage in our mission of building hope, transforming lives, and sharing Christ's love through service in Appalachia.
AmeriCorps was founded in 1994 as an initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). Since its inception, AmeriCorps has granted funding for more than 900,000 members serving more than 1.2 billion hours in service to hundreds of community organizations across the U.S. with more than 80,000 members participating each year.
Within AmeriCorps Kentucky, more than 10,000 members have served the state with 15 million hours of service commitments. Their outstanding work has qualified for more than $34.1 million in Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards.
