Albion College AmeriCorps
 
 
 
The Albion College AmeriCorps program is funded through the Michigan Community Service Commission, which utilizes service as a strategy to address the state's most pressing issues and empowers volunteers to strengthen communities. The Albion College AmeriCorps program seeks to allow its students to help their fellow citizens, serve their local and campus communities, and benefit from the growth and development provided through National Service. Members will serve alongside their peers, collaborating to address barriers and gaps in services within the areas of Youth Development, Sustainability and the Environment, Food Security, Health and Wellness and Economic Opportunity and Development. Members are placed with community partners based on their personal and professional interests, skills and goals. Members receive intensive support and specialized training. Albion is a high-need community whose citizens have long experienced pervasive problems that affect health, well-being, and quality of life, including systemic poverty, health outcomes, educational attainment, racial justice issues, and unemployment/underemployment. Placement sites will receive Member assistance to build permanent capacity and increase volunteer engagement. Activities in this area may include creating volunteer recruitment campaigns, building a volunteer screening process for the host site, producing volunteer training and development curricula including videos or written materials, building volunteer tracking systems, designing volunteer recognition programs, and/or writing volunteer training manuals. Members may also engage in direct service for the sake of informing capacity building efforts. This opportunity is available to Albion College undergraduate students only.
