Detroit LISC AmeriCorps

Detroit LISC combines corporate, government, and philanthropic resources to help community-based organizations revitalize underserved neighborhoods. This strategy extends to our LISC AmeriCorps program where we support and place AmeriCorps members with local nonprofit partners. Since the start of the Detroit LISC AmeriCorps program in 2009, members have assisted in efforts to revitalize neighborhoods across Detroit.

115 AmeriCorps members placed in the Detroit community to support key initiatives since 2009
