AmeriCorps is an Opportunity
Joining AmeriCorps is a way to put your idealism into action. As an AmeriCorps member with the Schools of Hope AmeriCorps Project, contribute to the academic success of our community’s children while developing and using your own professional skills.
AmeriCorps is an Experience
AmeriCorps is a real-life education and work experience wrapped into one. As a member, you will learn teamwork, leadership, responsibility and other essential skills that will help you for the rest of your life. And you will gain the personal satisfaction of taking on challenges and seeing results.
AmeriCorps Offers Tangible Benefits
Schools of Hope AmeriCorps members receive student loan deferment, a living allowance, professional training and, for full-time members, health insurance. After you complete your term of service, you will also receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award to help pay for college, graduate school, or vocational training or to repay student loans. AmeriCorps members 55 or older can transfer their education award to a child or grandchild.
This program is available to all, without regard to race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, political affiliation, or religion.
