Campus Corps Service Learning
- Fulfill all academic requirements in your department
- Follow the Steps of Member Enrollment (which can be provided to you by Lindsay Blackburn in the Office for Community Involvement), submit all paperwork and appropriate ID, and submit to a background check through AmeriCorps. Attend an in-person training to help you understand Campus Corps and your commitment.
- Meet community needs through your internship, clinical, or student teaching hours, and track your hours on monthly timesheets.
- Recruit a minimum of 2 volunteers over the course of the school year to do a service project with you. You can either pick a service project of your choice, or you can participate in a project hosted by the Office for Community Involvement. Volunteers cannot be other Campus Corps members. Roommates, family members, and friends make great volunteers!
- Complete all required paperwork in a timely fashion. Timesheets are due on the 10th of the following month to your supervisor.
- Exit from the program within 30 days of the last hours on your final timesheet.
- Education Award of $1,132-$2,675 upon successful completion of the program year
- Great resume-builder! AmeriCorps is a national program. Campus Corps members are a part of a national service movement!
- Reflection activities after service projects help you understand community needs, how you are meeting them, and what you learned by participating.
- Enrolled members can apply for the Careers in the Common Good scholarships (up to $250) to attend local, state-wide, or national conferences to help you develop as a professional.
