What is Students in Service (SIS)?

The Students in Service program is a part-time Campus Compact AmeriCorps program that encourages and supports college and university students to enroll as part-time AmeriCorps members who provide valuable service in their communities. Student members serve in partnership with schools and community-based organizations in the areas of education, environment, human needs, public safety, and community development. SIS members make a difference in their communities, gain valuable civic and workforce skills.
