Welcome to Barnstable County!

We’re so excited to welcome another conservation-focused national service effort to the America Learns community!

Meet Barnstable County AmeriCorps Cape Cod, a full-time residential service program committed to addressing the environmental- and disaster-related needs of Cape Cod and its fragile natural resources. Each year, up to 32 service-minded adults commit 11 months to responding to the needs of the community through hands-on service focused on Natural Resource Management (Land & Water Conservation), Disaster Preparedness and Response, Environmental and Community Education, and Volunteer Engagement.

Longstanding partnerships with the Cape Cod National Seashore (US National Park Service), the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, the American Red Cross, the Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee, the Compact of Cape Cod Land Trusts, and a large network of nonprofit organizations and municipal and county departments allow members to provide high-quality service to the 15 towns of Cape Cod.
