PHENND- Next Steps AmeriCorps Team Leader
The Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development (PHENND) is a consortium of over 25 colleges and universities in the greater Philadelphia area. PHENND works to build the capacity of its member institutions to develop mutually beneficial, sustained, and democratic community-based service-learning partnerships. The consortium actively seeks to revitalize local communities and schools and foster civic responsibility among the region’s colleges and universities. PHENND seeks four full-time AmeriCorps members to serve as a Team Leader and help support low-income first generation college students who are themselves enrolled as part-time AmeriCorps members. Team Leaders will be an integral part of the Next Steps AmeriCorps program. There will be three positions available, one at Temple University, Cabrini University (Radnor), and Kutztown University (Berks County) The Next Steps AmeriCorps is designed as a college retention initiate for rising sophomores and juniors who are Pell-eligible graduates of high poverty school districts. The Next Steps AmeriCorps program engages college students in community service, mentoring, supportive workshops and leadership development. Participants known as Corps members, complete 300 hours of community service in the course of one year. Corps are placed with community service placements and also mentor one incoming first-year student as part of their service. Team Leaders will be an integral part of the Next Steps AmeriCorps program and will be placed either at Cabrini University (Wolfington Center), Kutztown University (Enrollment Management & Student Affairs Division), or Temple University (Center for Community Partnerships).
