Community Coordinators recruit, train and supervise volunteers to assist Energy Express children during reading, writing, art, drama and non-competitive recreation activities.
Other community coordinator duties include raising awareness and involving the community and family members in children’s learning. Each community coordinator will also complete a community service project with other Energy Express AmeriCorps members.
Individuals of all ages are encouraged to apply, but must be at least 18 years of age by June 9, 2016. AmeriCorps community coordinators will serve in 80 sites across West Virginia from June 9- July 29, 2016.

Individuals age 55 or older who serve with AmeriCorps are now able to transfer their Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards to their children, grandchildren and foster children. The transfer award must be used within 10 years.
