What Is Americorps

AmeriCorps members dedicate a year of their lives to intensive community service. AmeriCorps members serve at nonprofits, schools, faith-based and other community-based organizations and can serve in full-time or part-time roles. During their year of service, AmeriCorps members receive a modest living allowance and may also receive health benefits, training, and student loan deferment. Upon completion of service, AmeriCorps members receive a college scholarship to help pay for college costs or student loans.

AmeriCorps is also a valuable pipeline to careers in education, nonprofit, and public service.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County is recruiting 54 AmeriCorps members to provide out-of-school education support, mentoring, service-learning activities, pre-college and college enrollment services to 170 high school age youth at 9 Clubs.
