EDC members are not required to have prior financial or human services experience. What we look for is a willingness and attitude to commit yourself to a term of service.

EDC is committed to: Improving the lives of the people we serve; Helping our partner organizations fulfill their missions; Creating supportive community; Developing and training EDC AmeriCorps to be prepared for the world to come.
