- Our Work
We provide AmeriCorps members to community development organizations across the state for ten-month terms. We offer training, stipends and benefits to members during their term of service and education awards to use after they’ve successfully completed their service.
LISC AmeriCorps members working with our partner organizations have done everything from financial counseling and job placement to housing development and foreclosure prevention. Along the way, they engage local residents in volunteering to improve safety, healthy and the beauty of their neighborhoods.
Many members serve the very communities where they live. This is one way to grow the pool of leaders who reflect the demographics of the neighborhoods served, and equip those emerging leaders with the skills to effect long-term community change.
