Lewis-Clark Service Corps promotes volunteering and service in the Northern Idaho region.
The AmeriCorps Program at LCSC recruits, trains and places tutors in K-12 schools throughout Northern Idaho, helping students improve academic skills, successfully address the challenges of staying in (or returning to) school, and planning for their futures.
The AmeriCorps VISTA Program also operates out of Lewis-Clark Service Corps. Members work on addressing the issue of food insecurity among LCSC students and their families to foster educational attainment and healthy futures.

In addition, Educational Award only positions are available to members serving a minimum of 300 hours. To serve, the prospective member must be a U.S. citizen or legal resident and be at least 17 years old. There is no maximum age limit.
