RSC-AmeriCorps is celebrating 25 years of advancing service as a strategy to build vibrant and caring communities in Benton and Franklin counties.
Join today and put your idealism into action
While it may be true that some AmeriCorps members don’t have a specific idea of what they want to do after they complete the program, there are plenty of members who consider AmeriCorps an important step in their career plan. For those who begin the program not knowing what they want to do, most get a much better sense of their career goals after completing their term of service.
Because AmeriCorps members work at schools and with non-profit organizations, the program provides a great way to network with people in those worlds, many of whom started out as AmeriCorps members themselves. It’s also a great stepping stone for a government career because it demonstrates a passion for and a commitment to public service.
Serving in communities that struggle with poverty is hard work ... and totally rewarding!
Our nation is facing immense challenges — one million students are dropping out of school each year, and in our community, 70% of children are living in poverty. AmeriCorps members are helping to solve these and many other problems and are making all the difference through tutoring programs that improve literacy and lower dropout rates.
