LISC AmeriCorps - 450 hour position
LISC AmeriCorps places passionate, dedicated people with community development groups in the neighborhoods where we work. These placements serve avital, three-fold purpose: members serve the organizations where they are placed and spearhead valuable projects; they engage local residents in the revitalization of their own neighborhoods; and they develop skills, experience and insight into community development and the profound value of service. Along the way, they engage local residents in volunteering to improve safety, healthy and the beauty of their neighborhoods. Many members serve the very communities where they live. This is one way to grow the pool of leaders who reflect the demographics of the neighborhoods served, and equip those emerging leaders with the skills to effect long-term community change.
