AmeriCorps is Recruiting

Every 26 seconds a student gives up on school somewhere in the country. If you are looking to make a difference, AmeriCorps is a great program to consider. AmeriCorps is described as a domestic Peace Corps, and follows a long tradition where dedicated, civic-minded Americans provide service to their country and community. SIU is one of the few schools with an AmeriCorps program!

By participating in AmeriCorps, you can help children reach their full potential, get them excited about education and be a role model for positive behavior.

Students selected to participate in AmeriCorps serve as tutors and mentors to children from pre-school to eighth grade. AmeriCorps offers leadership training, professional development, a monthly stipend and an education award after completion of service.
