More About AmeriCorps
MTCC’s AmeriCorps program launched in fall of 2015 with support from the Serve Montana and the Corporation for National & Community Service. The program supports college access and success across Montana by deploying full time AmeriCorps Leaders and part-time college student AmeriCorps members. Together, leaders with their team provide coaching and support to first generation and low income K-12 students and families across the state of Montana. AmeriCorps members provide a variety of direct service activities such as supporting youth-focused programming, offering college application nights, support with completing FAFSA applications, and norming the idea and practice of going to college.
MTCC AmeriCorps Leaders serve full-time for one year, September 1-August 31 at the host site and they recruit from the local college campus for Team Members to serve 300 hours in support of college access and student success programming. Leaders earn an Education award of $6,095, a modest living stipend as well as other benefits.
MTCC AmeriCorps Teams member earn an Education Award of $1,289.95 upon successful completion of 300 hours of service. This opportunity is open to work-study eligible students, interns, practicums or volunteers. Members serve with youth on student-success and college-access focused programming.
As an added bonus, some Montana campuses may also match the education award (e.g. University of Montana matches $1,000.)
