Citizen CorpsCitizen Corps

Stressing the need for volunteer efforts in areas of crime, natural disasters, and terrorism, President George W. Bush introduced Citizen Corps as part of the USA Freedom Corps program. Citizen Corps is a federal initiative that aims to harness volunteer spirit and create better-prepared citizens, neighborhoods, and communities, through education, training and volunteer service.

Citizen Corps Councils, which coordinate volunteer initiatives at the state and local levels, help make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds.
