Residential Life

Members of the AmeriCorps Cape Cod program live in three houses, two located in the Town of Wellfleet, with the third in the Town of Bourne. The Bourne House and Wellfleet House are each home to thirteen members, while the six members  of the FireCorps live in the Wells House in Wellfleet for the duration of the eleven month program. The residential aspect of ACC provides a unique team building experience while the members live and serve together, which forms friendships that last a lifetime.

Every Wednesday, the members of each house sit down to a group dinner to foster a positive environment in the residences, as well as to go over the upcoming service schedule. This allows members to take some time to bond with each other, and to build a strong and inclusive community. The residential experience is designed to create a positive experience for the members, and to allow members to focus on service rather than paying the rent.
