United Way receives AmeriCorps funding

The governor's lead agency on volunteerism in South Carolina announced $3.2 million in grants were allotted for AmeriCorps funding for the next year, and Sumter's group will receive a portion of that allotment.

Grants secured through the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency for volunteering and service programs, will be matched with more than $1 million in local money to support 17 AmeriCorps programs and nearly 500 AmeriCorps members serving South Carolina communities by tackling some of the toughest problems in the state, including education, disaster response, economic opportunity, healthy futures and environmental stewardship.

The $3.2 million includes three grants earned through a national competition, which brought an additional $885,347 to expand the AmeriCorps Service in the state, according to Commission Chairwoman Missy Santorum.

One of the 17 programs is United Way of Sumter, Clarendon and Lee Counties' Reading Success Program and its 28 AmeriCorps members who provide literacy tutoring for students in kindergarten through third grade who start the school year reading below grade level, said Nichole Mayberry, a spokeswoman for the United Way Association of South Carolina, the administrative agent for AmeriCorps funding in the state.

Needs & Deeds: AmeriCorps member serves community while earning money for college

Stillwater native Karli Sorrentino is learning firsthand how trauma from the loss of a parent because of incarceration impacts children's lives.

Sorrentino is an AmeriCorps member at New Hope Oklahoma, a nonprofit in downtown Tulsa that provides services to kids with parents in prison. The goal of the organization is to break generational incarceration.

Sorrentino's duties at New Hope Oklahoma include planning the curriculum, leading groups and serving with the NHO's after-school programs. She will complete her first term of service this fall but plans to continue working at NHO to further her mentorship experience. Through her work with the organization, she hopes to provide a positive impact through encouraging and uplifting kids within the Tulsa community.

“I really enjoy working with children and helping them better understand their emotion,” she said. “Building relationships with the kids and families at NHO has taught me a lot about how the loss of a parent in prison can be traumatic for children. It's given me a new perspective on teaching and mentoring, and I'll be able to take it into my future work.”

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.
