AmeriCorps Workers Developing Key Middletown Link To Scenic Trail

Driving up interest and awareness in the city’s natural resources and open spaces will allow local leaders to pursue additional preservation in the future, he said.

“It allows the residents of Middletown an entry point from one of their parks to one of the major trail systems in the Northeast,” Gartner said. “The more they get to see this land the more they’ll have a vested interest in it and the more they’ll have an interest in the further conservation of property.”

U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro visited the team Wednesday morning in Middletown as they begin a round of projects in Connecticut that will also include work at Gillette Castle State Park. The National Civilian Community Corps program within AmeriCorps receives federal funding, and DeLauro said more attention is needed on the service programs to protect their budgets in the future.

“This program has been level funded, but overall we have been able to increase the funding for the broad base of service corps programs,” DeLauro said. “We need you to speak out about the value of the programs.

Marshalltown tornado: Volunteers, staffers needed to help response team leading recovery, repair efforts

Months after a tornado devastated Marshalltown , volunteers are increasing their efforts — but they need more help. 

Gov. Kim Reynolds on Thursday announced that Volunteer Iowa is giving $400,000 in state and federal funding to equip and staff a mobile response unit that will make critical repairs to tornado-damaged homes in Marshalltown. But more staffing is needed to help lead volunteers, according a state news release.

The next goal for the unit is making homes livable through the winter and supporting long-term recovery.

Volunteer Iowa and Habitat for Humanity of Iowa have immediate openings for AmeriCorps members to assist in this effort. Job descriptions for a construction manager and positions on the Habitat for Humanity of Iowa Mobile Response AmeriCorps Team are available online at www.iowahabitat.org .

The mobile response unit is a partnership between Volunteer Iowa and Habitat for Humanity of Iowa and is supported by the Iowa Economic Development Authority and the Corporation for National and Community Service.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.


If you are as enthusiastic as you sound, I don't know how you would not be accepted.

I know many many people who have volunteered through Americorps just being a high school student, high school graduate or in college.
