AmeriCorps

Serve your Neighbor. Serve your community. Serve your country. www.nationalservice.gov

We are currently hiring AmeriCorps members for the 2011-2012 service year! Go to http://www.habitat.org/cd/hr/cncsjobs.aspx?type=5 for more information on positions available at Habitat for Humanity Kansas City.

AmeriCorps National members work in construction, volunteer services, and faith relations assisting staff and volunteers while "getting things done" in the work to eradicate poverty housing with Habitat affiliates all across the United States.  We are proud to have AmeriCorps members serving here!  Here in Kansas City we're excited to have three members currently serving: Kristen Blacksher, Heather Hingston, Craig Spinks.


AmeriCorps is made up of several different programs for all ages where members give their time to serve their country and better their community while receiving a modest living stipend (about $875 per month after taxes) from the federal government.

National Direct members typically serve for 11 months, September - July.  All members who serve with Habitat affiliates are required to work together on a community service project, attend a Leadership Conference and do a spring "Build-a-thon" with other Habitat AmeriCorps members from across the country.  When their terms are completed, all AmeriCorps members receive an education award of $5,350 that can be used to pay for college or to pay off education loans that have already been accrued. 

Would you like to serve your community & country in this way? Contact Dana for information about next year's positions or see information on the Habitat for Humanity International website for opportunities across the U.S.  You can also go to www.americorps.gov for information about all National Service programs with a variety of agencies.
