Colby College operates a Maine Rural State AmeriCorps program with two AmeriCorps members. The members  work with community nonprofits in the Greater Waterville Area to increase the capacity of those organizations to engage volunteers in their service delivery.

At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for creating, implementing, and participating in the establishment of programs to support capacity building with community partners. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 200 volunteers and 15-20 community partners who will be engaged in programs that improve community agencies' long term support from volunteers.
