Do you know someone between the age of 18-24 who is interested in a career in emergency management? FEMA Corps could be the first step to a meaningful career.
FEMA partners with the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) in this team-based service program that gives young adults the opportunity to serve communities impacted by disaster while gaining professional development experience.
Over the course of 12 months, FEMA Corps teams will travel the country, working side-by-side with FEMA staff at joint field offices, regional offices and headquarters. The teams will learn about FEMA and gain experience in emergency management. Some FEMA Corps alumni go on to become emergency management professionals at FEMA and elsewhere. FEMA Corps members also receive an education award at the end of their service that helps pay for college.
