FEMA Corps is a unique, team-based service program that gives 18‐24‐year‐old participants the opportunity to serve communities impacted by disaster while gaining professional development experience.
FEMA Corps is a partnership between FEMA and the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) program.
FEMA Corps members live, work, and travel in dedicated teams and serve 10-11 months (depending on membership type) with an option to extend for a second term.
Members gain training and experience while providing important support to disaster survivors and communities. Members also earn a modest living stipend during their service and receive an education award upon completion of the program.

FEMA Corps Member Testimonial
“Joining FEMA Corps is the best decision I ever made. I experienced more personal and professional development during my service year than I have in my entire life.
When considering the many opportunities and gifts that the program presents, the most salient to me are that it gave me purpose and a meaningful career, friends that feel like family, and the chance to help people when they need it the most.”
- Nikki F., FEMA Corps Class 27A, Southern Region
