Lake County AmeriCorps
AmeriCorps is a National Service Program providing volunteers an opportunity to serve their community (also referred to as the “Domestic Peace Corps”). In Lake County, the AmeriCorps Program focuses on:
Academic Support (Pre-12th) - You will provide small group and one-on-one tutoring in literacy and comprehension.
After-School Programming (K-12) - You will lead students in an hour of tutoring and homework help, small group tutoring, followed by enrichment activities focused on topics such as leadership, community service, and social issues.
Oral Health (0-5) - Serve students, in the 0-5 population, around the importance of oral health and assist families in finding needed services.
Volunteerism – Find volunteer opportunities, recruit and manage volunteers that foster the spirit of volunteerism and strengthen our communities!
The Lake County AmeriCorps program is a school year-long commitment to serve their community, dedicating 300, 450 or 900 hours over a six to ten month period. Upon completion of their commitment, they are also qualified for an Education Award to use for college expenses. Those members 55 years and older can now transfer their education award to a family member.
Rewards of volunteering include:
