National Service

National serviec refers to AmeriCorps. AmeriCorps is the federal agency for national service and volunteerism. AmeriCorps provides opportunities for Americans of all backgrounds to serve their country, address the nation's most pressing challenges, and improve lives and communities. Opportunities to serve with AmeriCorps include AmeriCorps State and National, AmeriCorps NCCC, AmeriCorps VISTA, and AmeriCorps Seniors programs.

UServeUtah manages the Utah AmeriCorps State program portfolio consisting of programs that address needs in the areas of economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, disaster preparedness, healthy futures, and veterans and military families. UServeUtah provides administrative, fiscal, and programmatic oversight as well as technical assistance and program development.

UServeUtah also administers AmeriCorps VISTA and AmeriCorps Seniors programming in targeted areas of the state.

community engagement

UServeUtah seeks to establish a strong infrastructure to promote service and volunteerism. We actively promote community and civic engagement and look for opportunities to help integrate a culture of service and volunteerism in all aspects throughout the state.

The community engagement initiatives raise awareness of the positive effects of volunteerism and provide high quality volunteer and educational opportunities that encourage individuals to be engaged members of their community. We help individuals identify their pathway of service, provide opportunities for people to serve and have a strong focus for youth and young adult engagement. We also find ways to recognize the service given by individuals and groups to help further promote ways people can give back to their community.
