Basic Info

The Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism (Georgia Serves) is a part of the GA Department of Community Affairs.

Our Mission 

The Georgia Commission for Service and Volunteerism (GCSV or Georgia Commission) is a catalyst to address critical needs in Georgia by working with AmeriCorps and community partners.

  • We create and promote opportunities for Georgians to serve.
  • We support organizations that use volunteer service to solve Georgia’s community problems.
  • We make sure the investment in volunteer service is protected and managed well.

Everyone Can Serve

Georgia Serves is the administrator for AmeriCorps State funding in Georgia and awards monetary grants and support to qualifying organizations.  AmeriCorps, “the domestic Peace Corps,” is a National Service program that engages Americans of all ages and backgrounds in team-based, results-driven service.   

Georgia Serves is also 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.

"Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It's important to the person who serves as well to the recipient. It's the way in which we ourselves grow and develop."  -  Dorothy Height
