Our Mission

The VISION of AmeriCorps St. Louis is to be a purveyor of skill, a beacon of hope, and a model of public stewardship. AmeriCorps St. Louis serves to create systemic change as well as provide direct service that impacts the well-being of the poor and disenfranchised, particularly children, the elderly, and people with disabilities.

The MISSION of AmeriCorps St. Louis is to enhance the professional skills and life-long ethic of the young men and women who serve; to respond to critical unmet needs in the areas of emergency response and environmental conservation; to leverage service of volunteers; and to build the capacity of our partnering agencies and communities we serve.
