Skowhegan AmeriCorps is a Maine Rural State program with three AmeriCorps members who coordinate and lead weekly free outdoor recreation activities and trainings.  The program is designed to increase physical activity and engagement with nature for local community members of all ages in the Skowhegan area.

Each year the AmeriCorps members are responsible for involving 350 new community members in outdoor recreation programming. The AmeriCorps members also train additional volunteers to lead the programs, and they are tasked with establishing a gear library so residents can borrow outdoor recreation equipment free of charge.
