Campus Compact- George Mason University
The AmeriCorps project at GMU will build capacity in the newly launched Office of Community Engagement and Civic Learning (CECiL). CECiL is focused on providing central university support for community and civic engagement that is also connected to anti-racism and inclusive excellence efforts. The AmeriCorps member will help develop GMU's Bonner Leader Program and support the development and community partner outreach for community-based learning at GMU. The Bonner Program is an educational access program serving low-income students who are largely first-generation college students. The AmeriCorps member will help build infrastructure to support the retention, academic success, and career readiness of Bonner Leader students to ensure higher education at GMU is a path out of poverty. The biweekly living allowance for this position is $791.70 in Fairfax County. In addition to the benefits listed, the host site will provide a public transportation pass or parking pass and food/grocery gift cards. The AmeriCorps member serving at George Mason University will be part of a dynamic, motivated corps with Campus Compact AmeriCorps VISTA. Serving as a member of a corps provides the chance to connect with other members throughout multiple states, create a network of support, and share resources. As the intermediary, Campus Compact, a national non-profit, supports the professional and personal growth of AmeriCorps members through a variety of professional development opportunities and in-person trainings including overnight retreats throughout their service year. If you would like to learn more about serving with Campus Compact, please email our VISTA Leaders at
