Peace Through Action USA is accepting applications through Friday, December, 8, 2023 from community organizations that wish to join us in requesting AmeriCorps national service members to confront social discord within their communities. Peace Through Action will include qualified community organizations in its upcoming application to AmeriCorps to operate Peace Through Action AmeriCorps.
