There are two components to a complete application for the MTCC AmeriCorps program. For an application to be complete, MTCC must receive both an application via the My AmeriCorps platform and an application supplement completed via Submittable.
The application and supplement you complete are essential to your candidacy for an AmeriCorps position with MTCC. Our staff attentively reviews all of your responses when determining whether to invite you to serve with our organization. Candidates who are selected for service will be those who show the most genuine engagement with the mission of MTCC and the philosophy of AmeriCorps. Evidence of thoughtful responses reflects well on you as an applicant.
Once MTCC has received and processed your application and references, you will receive an email from our office describing your next steps, including instructions to complete your application supplement. You will receive this message within one week of submitting all materials.
Part One: AmeriCorps Application
Your application for AmeriCorps service will be completed and submitted via the My AmeriCorps website, located at my.americorps.gov
Step 1: Create an account by visiting My AmeriCorps, and selecting “Register to create a new Member/Alum account”.
Step 2: Follow the steps to create your AmeriCorps profile.
Step 3: Create an application for your AmeriCorps profile.
Step 4: Once your application is complete, use it to apply to any Montana Campus Compact AmeriCorps position listed in My AmeriCorps. Check out all of our open positions.
Step 5: Complete your Application Supplement (described below).
Part Two: Application Supplement
Your application supplement will be completed via Submittable and includes important information about your motivations for service with MTCC, along with an opportunity to share your service site preferences. If you are accepted into the MTCC AmeriCorps program, these preferences will be used when determining your service site placement. You will receive instructions to complete your Application Supplement after we have reviewed your My AmeriCorps application and references.
You will be asked to include up to three top choices for your service site in your application supplement. During an interview, your interest in those sites will be discussed in greater depth. Candidates receiving an invitation to join the MTCC program will usually be offered a placement with one of these preferred service sites. On occasion, MTCC may offer a different placement if our team feels that it will be the best fit for your skills.
