AmeriCorps- Compact Service Corps


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Compact Service Corps AmeriCorps Program, hosted by Campus Compact of the Mountain West, is a national service program that connects students with communities through meaningful service-learning, civic engagement, and community service experiences.

Each year, Compact Service Corps will enable more than 3,500 college, university and high school students to serve with local nonprofit and government agencies throughout Arizona, Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. Compact Service Corps Members serve in positions that focus on increasing academic engagement in K-12 schools; providing primary and preventive healthcare to those living in designated underserved areas; and recruiting, training and managing volunteers for nonprofit and government agencies to build capacity and infrastructure for volunteer management.

The Colorado State University, Compact Service Corps AmeriCorps Program focuses on these three areas:

  • Education Focus Area Projects must work with students who are between kindergarten through 12th grade on improving academic engagement.  For more information on Education Focus Area Projects, click here.  If you will complete your service as a tutor, your service project must meet specific criteria (click here for more information).

  •   Healthy Futures Focus Area Projects must provide preventive and/or primary health care for underserved patients/clients.  For more information on Healthy Futures Focus Area Projects, click here.

  •  Capacity Building Focus Area Projects must serve local nonprofit organizations on development of infrastructure to increase and improve the organization's ability to manage volunteers to increase the effectiveness of programs and services.  Members serving under the capacity building focus area must develop and/or implement a minimum of three new volunteer management practices.  All capacity building projects must include recruitment, training and/or management of volunteers.  This can include new recruitment of community volunteers, training of existing volunteers and management of new and recurring volunteers at the host site.  For more information on Capacity Building Focus Area Projects, click here.
