AmeriCorps


What we do

LISC AmeriCorps places passionate, dedicated volunteers with community development groups in the neighborhoods where we work. These placements serve a vital, three-fold purpose:

  • members serve the organizations where they are placed and spearhead valuable projects;
  • they engage local residents in the revitalization of their own neighborhoods;
  • and they develop skills, experience and insight into community development and the profound value of 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. 

While in service members receive a living stipend and upon completion an education award that can be used toward qualified loans or future schooling. For any additional information regarding the AmeriCorps program feel free to contact LISC Flint office, Connie Brauer at 810-410-3011 or cbrauer@lisc.org.
