AmeriCorps is seeking candidates for their upcoming service program.
Service with AmeriCorps is an enriching and educational experience that is unlike any other employment opportunity. A term of service lasts for 11 months, during which you will need to serve 1700 hours with one of the Literacy Coalition’s community partner agencies. During your 11 month term, you will be paid a stipend of just over $12,500, in bi-weekly payments of approximately $550. You will also receive free health benefits and many professional development trainings aimed at helping you develop teaching skills and other important skills such as networking and resume writing. In addition, AmeriCorps members are eligible for child care subsidies and food stamps. Finally, upon successful completion of your 1700 hour term of service, you will receive an education award of over $5,700 that can be used to pay off student loans or to pay for future schooling.
