National Service in Maine
Over 2,600 people serve in one of the Maine National Service programs:
- AmeriCorps State/National,
- Foster Grandparents,

- Senior Companions, and
They partner with over 500 schools, nonprofits, and local or state government agencies.

It is the "one-stop" site for
- organizations seeking volunteers,
- citizens who want to volunteer, and
- the people responsible for leading volunteer programs.
