22-23 Economic Mobility Coach - $27,000 living allowance
 
 
 
Fight poverty in the Upstate South Carolina community on our team of 20 members and grow as a professional, gaining real-world experience in the nonprofit sector. Our community is growing rapidly and is recognized with many accolades, but that has not translated to improved conditions for marginalized and disconnected communities. High unemployment and poverty rates contribute to food and housing crises compounded by systems that keep people from reaching economic independence. Our team members serve at a variety of partner organizations to overcome barriers, improve access, and create vibrant and equitable communities. Moving out of poverty is complex, a multi-year process that requires families to juggle maintaining their health, taking care of their kids, managing their money, gaining post-secondary education or credentials, and moving into a family-sustaining career – all at once. Our team will utilize Mobility Mentoring® practices to provide comprehensive support to families. This starts with assessing individual situations and barriers to success and continues with coaching, positive reinforcement, and recognition. Team members will provide crisis management, resource navigation, and support services to help participants overcome barriers to their long-term goals. These services range from benefit application assistance to free tax preparation through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program. Benefits: $27,000 total allowance paid in bi-weekly $1,080 installments. $6,495 education award paid upon completion and can be used for educational expenses for up to 7 years. Health coverage including dental and vision available. View our FAQs at www.americorpsupstate.org. This is a great opportunity for recent graduates, veterans, retirees, or anyone interested in a career in the nonprofit field. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our Corps and strongly encourage qualified individuals of all backgrounds to apply.
