About Us

Inspired by the national call to make a year of full-time national service a cultural expectation, common opportunity, and civic rite of passage for every young American, Flint has committed to being a demonstration site for what that looks like at the local level. Local leaders outlined a commitment to have 200 national service members in Flint, a ten-fold increase, by 2019. These members serve as the boots-on-the-ground to meet the community-identified vision outlined in the Flint Master Plan. 

The community's strategy to increase the number and effectiveness of national service members is led by the Flint National Service Accelerator, housed at the United Way of Genesee County. This model supports organizations and members, provides coordination for recruitment, and helps organizations offset the costs of hosting members. This unique model has led to tremendous results and is being looked upon as a model for other communities. Flint was named in the first cohort of Service Year Impact Communities through Service Year Alliance

Some of Flint's national service programs include: Flint Community School CorpsFlint Urban Safety CorpsFlint Recovery Corps, Boys and Girls Club of Greater Flint VISTA Program, FoodCorps, AdviseMI, Senior Corps RSVP, AmeriCorps LISC, the Genesee County Opioid Abuse Prevention VISTA Program and more.
