Lor Tab, if you are referring to a maximum age to apply, there is actually no ceiling for age.  You can visit http://www.lisc.org/section/ourwork/national/americorps/apply to learn more about LISC Americorps.  The only age requirement is that you are over 17 years of age. 

There have been a number of updates to Americorps service benefits and requirements.  This would include the ability to "gift" your education award to a son/daughter or grandson/ granddaughter.  To transfer an award, the transferring  individual must have been at least 55 years of age before beginning the term of service; begun the term on or after October 1, 2009; transferred the award before its expiration date; and earned the award in an AmeriCorps State or National Program.
