Important Dates

Notre Dame-AmeriCorps will begin accepting applications in February 2016 for the next service year, which begins September 1, 2016 and ends on July 31, 2017. Applications will be accepted until all positions are filled. Timelines may vary by city and circumstance, but generally decisions are made within 4-6 weeks of initial application.


We invite applications from individuals who are over 21 and have work experience or a college education. A high school diploma is required unless the applicant is enrolled in a GED program while serving and completes his or her GED by the end of the year of service.

Applicants should also possess:

  • The willingness to spend a year in the service of others.
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to be flexible, adaptive, and work on a team.
  • U.S. citizenship or be a lawful permanent resident.
  • Commitment to serve as a full-time volunteer for 11 months.
