AmeriCorps State Program


The Nevada Outdoor School AmeriCorps Program is a community development program that provides human resources to worthy non-profits, professional and life-skills training for community members and collaborations for best practices which in turn increases the overall outreach of the non-profits and enables citizens to live more meaningful and independent lives.


Nevada Outdoor School's AmeriCorps State program places full-time, part-time, and summer AmeriCorps members at worthy organizations throughout rural northern Nevada. These members are individuals who are dedicating a year or summer of their lives to serving others in the community by being environmental stewards, educators, mentors, and caregivers.
