Our Mission

The Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism (GCSV) is a part of the GA Department of Community Affairs. Our mission is to promote service and volunteerism in Georgia through AmeriCorps national service grants, community volunteer recognition, and support of local volunteer organizations and efforts. We also serve as a pass through agency for funds from the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency located in Washington D.C.  The Georgia Legislature created the GCSV in 1994 in response to the National and Community Service Act passed by Congress in 1993. Our board consists of twenty five members appointed by the Governor.  

Everyone Can Serve 

The Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism is dedicated to offering opportunities to individuals with disabilities. We provide reasonable accommodations for eligible and qualified AmeriCorps Members with disabilities and identify volunteer opportunities that are accessible.
