The COVID-19 crisis has had a disproportionate impact on Connecticut’s most vulnerable communities. Our community-based partners are on the front lines of this crisis and many are facing great urgency to respond to the needs of the people they serve.
Due to this increased need, LISC Connecticut has announced its first AmeriCorps summer cohort, specifically focused on responding to emergency needs stemming from COVID-19.
Individuals selected for this cohort will complete 300 or 450 hours of service during the summer and receive a living stipend as well as an education award.
The following organizations are participating in LISC Connecticut’s AmeriCorps COVID-19 Response Cohort as placement sites:
LISC Connecticut has one remaining unallocated 300-hour member placement reserved for a nonprofit organization addressing an increased need in services such as food distribution, employment, housing security, and senior wellness due to COVID-19. If you are interested in applying for a summer AmeriCorps placement, please email Farhana Arif to learn more about the requirements for the program.
