'19-20 Peace Community Center Service Team (Tacoma, WA)
Peace Community Center is a non-profit, faith-based organization committed to empowering Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood children, youth and young adults to reach their full potential. The Center lives out its mission through its educationally focused programs and by building relationships that support students to be successful from elementary school through their post-secondary education. Our goal is that students become life-long learners who act with compassion and confidence, using their diverse gifts for positive change. Service Team AmeriCorps members serve directly with students, their families, the schools and community members to live out this mission and serve within the Center’s Elementary, Middle School or High School, College and Career Programs. Team members serve students within the school during the school day, provide 1:1 coaching, and support after-school tutoring, instruction, and enrichment programs. Through service and professional development, our hope is that Peace Community Center AmeriCorps members will 1. Grow as individuals through increased self-awareness and commitment to social justice based in critical self-reflection on values, identity, and worldview; 2. Develop a strong connection to community, both within the Center and the local Tacoma community through ongoing team-building and group development projects and family and community events in Tacoma; 3. Be supported and challenged to gain skills to lead as professionals in our community and to advance Peace Community Center’s mission, vision, and values. Please visit our website to learn more about the Center’s Service Team at ‘Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received with interviews taking place until placement is filled.’ These positions are contingent on funding. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
