AmeriCorps/Caring Counts

Training the Next Generation of AIDS Leaders and Activists

As the first and broadest-reaching national AmeriCorps program focusing specifically on HIV prevention and care, the National AIDS Fund AmeriCorps/Caring Counts Program delivers vital resources while training the next generation of AIDS leaders.

Over the past 13 years, the National AIDS Fund AmeriCorps/Caring Counts Program has trained and supported over 400 youth and adult members who share a passion for making a difference and saving lives. Partnering cities value the impact and energy of members who provide a variety of direct services where they are most needed. For the current program year (2007-2008), a total of 49 members have been placed in the following cities:

  • Albuquerque/Santa Fe,NM
  • Charlotte,NC (and surrounding areas)
  • Chicago,IL
  • Detroit,MI
  • Indianapolis,IN
  • Tulsa,OK
  • Washington,DC

Since 1994, the success and continued growth of the National AIDS Fund AmeriCorps/Caring Counts Program has been made possible through the unwavering support of the MetLife Foundation and the Corporation for National and Community Service. As an extension of their support, the MetLife Foundation, in partnership with the National AIDS Fund, launched the Caring Counts Awards Program in 1997 to highlight members’ volunteerism and a lifelong commitment to community service.
