AmeriCorps NCCC FEMA Corps - Summer 2018
 
 
 
FEMA Corps, part of the AmeriCorps NCCC program, is a full-time, team-based residential service program for people ages 18-24. Must be a U.S. citizen. Members work directly with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and are assigned to NCCC regional campuses, located in Sacramento, CA; Vicksburg, MS; and Vinton, IA. The mission of AmeriCorps NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through team-based national and community service. FEMA Corps requires a 10-month commitment of its members who serve on teams of 8-12 people. Teams are assigned to disaster related service projects exclusively with FEMA throughout the region of their campus and if needed, throughout the country. FEMA Corps members will serve in areas ranging from coordinating logistics at FEMA field offices, helping to assess disaster damage, gathering information from survivors to get the support needed to rebuild their homes and lives, supporting disaster recovery centers, and sharing valuable disaster response and mitigation information with the public. Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as selection is continuous and the class may fill before the application deadline. NCCC exceeds the responsibilities of a typical 9 to 5 job. A project sponsor may assign additional work, a member must complete additional Independent Service Project (ISP) hours, and members are required to participate in team activities, meetings and selected team role responsibilities. Due to the high level of responsibility, a member cannot engage in any outside activity (e.g., employment, classes, or personal volunteer opportunities) that either precludes, limits, or detracts from the member serving successfully.
