Sycamore Service Corps

AmeriCorps is a network of programs throughout the US that allows individuals to serve at nonprofit organizations in their communities, while being compensated for their time.  The program at Indiana State University is called Sycamore Service Corps.

The Sycamore Service Corps places volunteers with local nonprofit organizations to complete service terms of 300, 450, or 675 hours. The program is a great opportunity for local residents or students to provide meaningful service to nonprofit agencies and to make a difference in the community. Volunteers accepted into the AmeriCorps program become members and most receive a living allowance in exchange for their service. Members also receive an education award upon successful completion of the program. Education award amounts range from $1,175 - $2,114. Training and professional development are also benefits of the program.

Information on the national program is available at http://www.americorps.gov.
