AmeriCorps Urban Safety Program
 
 
 
Wayne State University - Center for Urban Studies is seeking AmeriCorps members to fill Summer positions within the AmeriCorps Urban Safety Program. AmeriCorps is a national program of volunteer service. The AmeriCorps Urban Safety (AMUS) Program is working to implement initiatives to increase public safety and decrease victimization in targeted neighborhoods throughout the City of Detroit. These initiatives are designed to: 1) improve levels of neighborhood guardianship; 2) reduce victim attractiveness and susceptibility; and 3) use technology for crime mapping and analysis, and for enhancing neighborhood communication on matters of public safety. AMUS members work with residents and community groups to assist in forming neighborhood block clubs and citizen patrols, recruit and engage landlords and tenants in neighborhood safety and revitalization projects, and implement safe pathways for students who walk and use public transportation in their daily commute to neighborhood schools. Members also network and build coalitions with community organizations, including CDCs, schools, church groups, and police precincts. In partnership with these groups, members organize community events ranging from educational forums to neighborhood potlucks to boardups of abandoned and open houses.
