Maine Commission for Community Service
Advancing Volunteerism. Strengthening Communities.
We love Maine, but rural states like ours lack the resources and opportunities of bigger metropolitan areas. Maine is equal in geographic size to the other five New England states combined. With a small population in a very large area, our residents sometimes have to travel for miles to meet basic needs and receive services, or, they go without. We are proud that our AmeriCorps members and our volunteers close that gap and help residents with community-based solutions.
Our mission is to foster community service and volunteerism to meet human and environmental needs in the State of Maine.
As the State of Maine partner for the Corporation for National and
Community Service, the Commission has several responsibilities
related to AmeriCorps and National Service. These include:
• providing training and technical assistance to local nonprofit organizations
and other entities that want to plan and apply for funding to implement
national service programs;
• selecting programs to be funded under the National and Community
• pre-selecting programs to compete for funding under the AmeriCorps
State Competitive grant category;
• providing training and technical assistance to National Service programs
• evaluating, monitoring, and administering grant programs.
Our portfolio of AmeriCorps programs focus on education, environmental stewardship and conservation, mentoring, economic opportunity, and public health.

A Maine Way to Serve
Our programs and host sites are close-knit and supportive. Members network with each other and create a community throughout their year of service. AmeriCorps alumni are everywhere in Maine and keep the commitment to service alive. This network, plus the commission’s events, provide ample opportunities for personal and professional development.
