An AmeriCorps program connecting service members and under-resourced communities throughout Washington state
By joining Washington Service Corps’ AmeriCorps program, you can help local non-profits, schools, government agencies, tribal nations and faith-based organizations meet community needs. Try environmental stewardship or a chance to help students improve academically; help adults improve their health, prepare for disasters, advance their careers or increase their technology, financial and basic skills; or provide Veterans with opportunities to engage in their community through volunteering. Take a look at the stories above to see how WSC members are making a difference in their communities.
WSC AmeriCorps members serve in 7 different focus areas in both urban and rural settings throughout Washington state. The impact of this service can be challenging to measure precisely because of the intangibility of some benefits, and the time it takes some interventions to result in a measurable effect. The report below is only a brief summary of the multitude of outcomes that Service Corps and Reading Corps service sites reported on between August 16th, 2018 and 2019.
Let our members help you help others! Hosting a WSC AmeriCorps member is the perfect solution for public or charitable organizations looking to leverage resources to address unmet community needs, while contributing to the development of future leaders.
