Your Commitment Matters
The Lake County AmeriCorps program serves our students and communities on the premise that is takes a caring, consistent, and positive adult to help make a difference. Being a member in the Lake County AMeriCorps program takes a year-long commitment to serve his/her community. Members dedicate 450, 900, or 1200 hours over a 10 to 11 month period. Upon completion of their commitment, they are eligible for an Education Award to use for college expenses. Members 55 years and older (at the time of enrollment) can transfer their education award to a child or grandchild.
Members are asked to whole-heartedly commit to the term of service they sign up to complete, challenge themselves, and take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children, families, and our community.
