LISC National
Our Work


LISC Milwaukee is pleased to be a part of LISC’s national AmeriCorps program supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). LISC AmeriCorps places passionate, dedicated volunteers with community development groups in the neighborhoods where we work.

These placements serve a vital, three-fold purpose: members serve the organizations where they are placed and spearhead valuable projects; they engage local residents in the revitalization of their own neighborhoods; and they develop skills, experience and insight into community development and the profound value of service.

LISC AmeriCorps members working with our partner organizations have done everything from financial counseling and job placement to housing development and foreclosure prevention. Along the way, they engage local residents in volunteering to improve safety, healthy and the beauty of their neighborhoods.

Many members serve the very communities where they live. This is one way to grow the pool of leaders who reflect the demographics of the neighborhoods served, and equip those emerging leaders with the skills to effect long-term community change.

For more information on serving as an AmeriCorps member or hosting an AmeriCorps member, contact Bess Earl.
