The American Connection Corps is connecting people to places and possibilities in disconnected communities across America.

Where we live increasingly determines which people, places, and possibilities we can access, leading to a rise in cultural divides, social and economic inequities, and community insularity.

 

The American Connection Corps (ACC) is an AmeriCorps program that leverages the power of national service to expand people’s economic opportunities, bridge their social network, and open them up to different perspectives.

How do we do this?

We recruit and place corps members in digitally disconnected communities, where they connect people to:

  • people. ACC brings together people who might not otherwise meet, whether they live in a different neighborhood in the same community or in a different region of the country.

  • places. We support ACC corps members in building skills and forming deep and lasting connections with the communities they serve, so that they become passionate and effective ambassadors for those communities both during and after their service.

  • possibilities. ACC corps members work shoulder-to-shoulder with local partners on a range of projects that connect people to new opportunities such as telehealth, e-learning, and ag tech.
