AmeriCorps St. Louis, formerly St. Louis Partners AmeriCorps, began as a pilot for National Service in the summer of 1994. Since that initial success, it is the only AmeriCorps program in Missouri - and one of only a few programs in the nation - that has received federal funding out of the top tier of “exemplary and demonstrable programs” since the inception of AmeriCorps.
Since 1994, inspired people from across America have brought to St. Louis their enthusiasm, their talents, and a commitment to serve their country. AmeriCorps St. Louis has distinguished itself as one of the leading AmeriCorps programs in the nation through a long and impressive history, recruiting new Members each year to serve as an Emergency Response Team. Our motto is “See The Need, Meet The Need,” which we take to heart in everything we do, as we always strive to reach those who are least served, last served, or never served.
The impact of AmeriCorps St. Louis on the region, on its Members, and on those who benefit from its services, is profound. Our region's natural habitats are preserved for future generations. Communities, neighborhoods, and agencies are organized into new collaborations to provide more effective disaster preparedness programs. Families in their darkest hours are given relief after a disaster strikes. The list goes on and on . . .
For those who serve as AmeriCorps Members, the desire to give back does not end after one year. Former members are significantly more likely to enter careers in public and environmental service, many devoting their lives to emergency management, natural resource conservation, or wildland firefighting. The St. Louis region benefits from the many alums of our program that remain in the area, revitalizing the city through their commitment to the community and its residents.
The strength of our partnerships, governance and funding base, combined with consistent Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) federal funding, has enabled our program to dramatically increase the number of communities assisted with emergency preparedness and response needs.
