Wake Forest University is home to various AmeriCorps projects, including AmeriCorps*VISTA and Public Health AmeriCorps. Together, members and volunteers serve directly with nonprofit organizations to tackle our nation’s most pressing challenges.

Individuals interested in putting their values into action can make a difference as VISTA members and Summer Associates with the Winston-Salem Community Action, or as volunteers with Public Health AmeriCorps.
