The Corporation for National and Community Service is an Executive Branch federal agency that fosters service as a solution, administering national programs such as Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America.
The Corporation engaged Accenture to help the agency realize the promise of the Serve America Act, by developing a roadmap to strategically manage rapid growth—thus ensuring that its organization remained focused on this critical service mission, as opposed to internal operations.
The Serve America Act of 2010 significantly expanded the Corporation’s scope and budget, and established aggressive performance targets. Specifically, the Act called for the Corporation to triple the number of AmeriCorps volunteers by 2017, launch multiple new programs nationwide and manage a 30 percent increase in its 2010 fiscal year budget. The Corporation asked Accenture to help it develop a roadmap by which it could achieve these goals most quickly and effectively.
