Come to an upcoming AmeriCorps Informational Meeting!

AmeriCorps is a national service program that places stipended volunteers called “members” in local communities.  In Oregon, we have many different AmeriCorps programs providing opportunities for agencies, nonprofits and schools to receive a member.  These meetings are focusing specifically on two programs: the Oregon State Service Corps (OSSC) and the Clara Barton VISTA Corps (CBVC).  We will share application information, calendars and answer questions.  Please join us and learn how your agency can host an AmeriCorps or AmeriCorps*VISTA member to address specific needs in your community.
