The Washington Service Corps was created by the Washington State legislature in 1983. The WSC assists private non-profit organizations and units of local government in addressing unmet community needs and providing young adults with meaningful service experiences. Since 1994, the WSC has been a key player in the AmeriCorps national service movement, which engages Americans of all ages and backgrounds in full- or part-time service that Gets Things Done in communities across the nation. AmeriCorps members perform service that has a direct and demonstrable impact in four critical issue areas: education, environment, human services, and public safety.
