It operates three dynamic business units organized to innovate, incubate and activate new ideas: HandsOn Network, a network of 250 local affiliates across the country and around the world; generationOn, the youth service movement that ignites the power of kids to make their mark on the world; and AmeriCorps Alums, the national service alumni network that activates the next generation of service leaders.
