Summer Associate Program at CEDAM- KENA
 
 
 
CEDAM's Summer Associate program is placing six AmeriCorps VISTA summer associates across Michigan to address the issue of food insecurity. Summer associates will serve at a host site for ten weeks doing direct service work like providing meals, teaching children about healthy food and exercise, recruiting volunteers and providing outreach to ensure that families know about the resources available to them year round. CEDAM's summer associates will receive abundant training opportunities including a one-day orientation in Lansing and the option to attend the Developing Vibrant Communities conference in Detroit. Make a difference in your community this summer!
