AmeriCorps Positions Available!!
Dear Student: Are you looking for a meaningful way to make a positive difference? If yes, Land of Lincoln AmeriCorps is looking for students to serve as tutors and mentors to children in elementary schools. AmeriCorps National Service is often referred to as the “domestic Peace Corps”. AmeriCorps members strive to increase literacy and academic skill, provide strong role models, and to promote a positive view of education for children.
AmeriCorps members have opportunities for leadership and professional development as well as networking at state events. Students who are US citizens and permanent residents from all majors can apply. It is often a transformative experience for participants. We are one of a few schools with an AmeriCorps program!!
Members selected receive a monthly living allowance and a monetary education award after successful completion of service.
Interested students can call the SIU AmeriCorps Coordinator at 453-7520 for an appointment to learn more about the program.
