Two AmeriCorps Opportunities…

Mentor

Serves directly with children
College-student mentors make learning fun for small groups of school-age children by creating an enriching environment focused on reading, writing, drama, and art. Mentors also eat breakfast and lunch with the children – a valuable time to develop strong bonds.

Community Coordinator

Serves directly with volunteers
Community Coordinators raise awareness and involve parents and the community with
children’s learning. Community coordinators recruit, train, and supervise volunteers to read with children and engage in other activities at the site.

AmeriCorps members will receive…

  • A living allowance of $1,850 which is subject to all state and federal taxes.
  • Valuable training before and during Energy Express.
  • A Segal AmeriCorps Education Award in the form of a voucher for $1,175 (available October 2014).
  • An opportunity to earn college credit (arrangements made individually).

About Energy Express…

Energy Express, an 8-week AmeriCorps summer service opportunity, makes a difference in the lives of West Virginia children.

During the summer, children living in rural and low-income communities often:

  • Fall behind academically
  • Suffer nutritionally

Energy Express promotes school success by:

  • Focusing on reading and related activities
  • Serving two nutritious family-style meals each day
  • Working with children in small groups
  • Involving older youths and community members in children’s learning
  • Making reading fun for children
  • Increasing family involvement
