AmeriCorps


Do you want to serve your community and earn money for college?

The Judicial Branch in Maricopa County, which includes the 4th largest trial court in the nation, seeks enthusiastic volunteers to serve in the Law Library Resource Center. In a partnership with the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family, the Judicial Branch in Maricopa County created the Providing Access to Court Services (PACS) AmeriCorps program. The PACS AmeriCorps program is funded by Agreement with the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), State and National program.

AmeriCorps is a national service program that “Gets Things Done” for America. Members serve at local organizations and agencies committed to addressing critical community needs in education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, economic opportunity, veterans and military families, and disaster preparedness.

PACS AmeriCorps Members help self-represented litigants navigate the often-confusing court system. The Law Library Resource Center has four locations in Maricopa County.  PACS members typically choose the location and create their own schedule. While serving in the PACS program members:

  • Learn about the Judicial system and court process
  • Gain real-life experience assisting court customers
  • Promote access to justice to court visitors
  • Provide resources to court customers
  • Earn a modest living allowance
  • Earn an education award upon successful completion of the program
