In September 1993, President Clinton formed AmeriCorps by signing the National and Community Service Trust Act. This act established a Corporation for National Service to enhance opportunities for national service and provide educational awards to persons participating in national service.
This digital exhibit highlights artifacts, documents, photographs, and video from the Clinton Presidential Library and Museum relating to AmeriCorps and national service during the Clinton administration.
“All across America we have problems that demand our common attention. For those who answer the call and meet these challenges, I propose that our country honor your service with new opportunities for education. National service will be America at its best, building community, offering opportunity, and rewarding responsibility.” -President Clinton, 3/1/1993
