Lifelong Maine AmeriCorps Program
 
 
 
BACKGROUND: Maine’s Lifelong Communities support healthy aging by addressing barriers to health and well-being in the physical, social, and service environments. While the focus is on older residents, Lifelong Communities work for a time when residents of all ages, abilities, economic backgrounds, and lifestyles will have the opportunity to live safe, healthy, and rewarding lives. LIFELONG MAINE AMERICORPS CORE VALUES (1) Diversity/Inclusion: Communities are strongest when they are able to engage people with a wide variety of skills and life experiences. Our members listen, learn, and work across differences to build more resilient lifelong communities. (2) Focus on Assets: Community change starts with gaining an understanding of what communities can do for themselves, as a coordinated group of residents and local organizations, without outside help. Our members believe in the strength of the community, work to build coalitions, and develop consensus across diverse interests so to move the lifelong community forward to achieve common goals. (3) Building Trust: Community change happens at the rate of trust. Our members act with integrity to develop trust with the Lifelong Community core team, partners, and residents. (4) Innovation: Our members commit to lifelong learning, networking with other communities, and reflecting on their own learning process to help Lifelong Communities implement innovative ideas that will increase access to the built, social and service environments by residents of all ages, abilities, and life experiences. MEMBER SERVICE: Lifelong Maine AmeriCorps members (Community Project Organizers) work with residents to address challenges such as access to technology, food security, home repair, transportation, and social isolation. Members help these grassroots groups build local capacity by networking with partners, volunteer recruitment, and working with the core team to develop sustainable and inclusive leadership.
