LEAP AmeriCorps Program Awarded Funding And Recruiting In The NEK

The Lyndon Economic opportunity AmeriCorps Program (LEAP) recently announced a successful application for funding for the 2016-2017 program year.

LEAP, at Lyndon State College, was founded in 2015 and is a new vision for the former Northeast Kingdom Initiative (NEKI) program that has been changing lives of youth and families in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont since 1994. In the 2015-2016 service year, 41 LEAP members were recruited to serve at 12 sites in the NEK, implementing educational programs to youth and adults while increasing the capacity of their Host Site. LEAP members also engaged in professional development through their experience in National Service. LEAP is committed to recruiting from the NEK, and in the past year 68 percent of LEAP members were NEK residents or current college students living in the NEK.

LEAP is a State AmeriCorps program funded through CNCS, the Corporation of National and Community Service, and SerVermont, the Vermont Commission on National and Community Service. Vermont was recently given the honor of being named the Number 4 “AmeriState,” which means as a state Vermont produced the fourth highest number of National Service members per capita in the nation. In 2015-2016 LEAP members delivered more than 700 educational programs to more than 14,000 program participants (some duplicated), and leveraged over 250 additional community volunteers. In 2016-2017 LEAP will continue a focus on economic opportunity and educational programming for youth in: early childhood literacy, outdoor and conservation education, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education, college and career preparation, and more. In the coming year LEAP host sites will include, but are not limited to: Green Mountain Farm to School, UVM Extension, Northwoods Stewardship Center, Cobleigh Library, St Johnsbury Athenaeum, Lyndon State College Upward Bound, Fairbanks Museum, Coutts Moriarty/Siskin Outdoor Ecological Adventures, and the Lyndon Town School Kingdom Afterschool Program.

Mayor's 'Building Healthy Communities' initiative aims to improve health outcomes in 12 underserved neighborhoods ...

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Senior Advisor Gabrielle Fialkoff announced on Thursday Building Healthy Communities (BHC), a public-private partnership designed to improve health outcomes in 12 chronically underserved neighborhoods across the five boroughs. Spearheaded by the Mayor’s Office of Strategic Partnerships and the Fund for Public Health, BHC is a multi-agency initiative that focuses on three key goals: increasing opportunities for physical activity, expanding access to healthy and affordable food, and making improvements to public safety.

BHC leverages $270 million in public capital investments in addition to $12 million in private funding. The 12 neighborhoods BHC is engaging with are Brownsville, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Canarsie, East Harlem, Mott Haven, Hunts Point, Morrisania, Central Harlem, Corona, Flushing, Mariners Harbor and Stapleton.

“Today’s public health problems are often complex, requiring broad partnership and collective action across sectors,” said de Blasio. “Building Healthy Communities is another step forward in ensuring that every neighborhood has the tools it needs to be healthy and, most importantly, it brings communities together to make the choices that instill a culture of good health.” 

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.
