Nonprofits to Benefit From AmeriCorps

— Some nonprofits with Upper Valley ties — including Dartmouth-Hitchcock and Wise — are benefiting from $4.08 million coming into New Hampshire to support AmeriCorps members this year, according to a news release issued on Thursday.

This funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service, which will support 298 AmeriCorps members, is up from $2.9 million the state received in AmeriCorps funding last year, according to the release, which was issued by Democratic U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan.

“With the expanded funding this year, we look to offer more programming, with members serving to assist individuals and families impacted by the opioid crisis and youth in foster care,” Executive Director of Volunteer NH Gretchen Berger said in the release. Volunteer NH is a Concord-based organization that promotes volunteerism and administers the AmeriCorps grants in the Granite State.

Of the $4 million, D-H’s Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital will receive about $316,000 to help support AmeriCorps members, according to a funding breakdown provided by Ricki Eshman, a member of Hassan’s staff.

9news.com | Denver Public Schools AmeriCorps program terminated

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs where members are eligible for an education award by committing their time to community service. DPS said its AmeriCorps program allows members to “serve qualifying hours in exchange for education credits."

According to a news release from DPS, the Serve Colorado review revealed that the district violated the rules of AmeriCorps grants by enrolling existing employees like paraprofessionals, math fellows and teacher residents in the program.

Now that AmeriCorps has been terminated at DPS, the district said it is using money from the general fund to reimburse employees who were getting paid by grants.

DPS said in a news release there are 475 AmeriCorps members in the program and the district expects to pay $1 million to $1.8 million to reimburse them over the next seven years.

The district’s teacher residents will also continue to receive the living stipend from DPS, according to the news release.

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.
