Who are we?

AmeriCorps is the national service movement that provides thousands of American adults of all ages and backgrounds with an education award and real-world experience in exchange for a defined term of service.


AmeriCorps members help meet our nation’s most pressing challenges in the areas of Disaster Services, Economic Opportunity, Environmental Stewardship, Healthy Futures, Veterans and Military families, and Education.

KEYS Service Corps in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has been an AmeriCorps program since 1995.

KEYS (Knowledge to Empower Youth to Success) Service Corps members serve at-risk youth in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County by providing safe places with structured activities, assisting with homework and classwork, and implementing service projects.

Members serve full time or less than full time at one of our partnering sites while receiving training and support from KEYS staff before and during their term-of-service. Our members are placed with a variety of schools, after-school programs, community-based organizations and faith-based organizations.
