Join Us as a Service Site in our Peace Through Action AmeriCorps Program Application!

Apply Online | Applications Accepted for Waitlisting

Peace Through Action USA is accepting applications on a rolling basis from community organizations that wish to join us in requesting AmeriCorps national service members to confront social discord within their communities. Peace Through Action may be able to add qualified community organizations to its future Peace Through Action AmeriCorps program. Peace Through Action has a current federal grant to plan this program. We have submitted an application to AmeriCorps seeking funds to operate our program in 2024.

In addition to the application, this webpage contains application instructions, a presentation, a Frequently Asked Questions, and a service term and a site participation fee table.

Also provided is a PDF view only version of the application. We encourage applicants to open the PDF view only version, prepare your responses on a separate document, and then cut and paste your responses into the online application in a single session. 

We look forward to including in our application a robust and diverse set of community organizations committed to increasing safety, belonging, and peace among their people and within their places.
