The Frederick Community Action Agency (FCAA), in partnership with A STAR AmeriCorps, is pleased to announce the availability of two (2) openings for full-time AmeriCorps Members and one (1) part-time AmeriCorps Member to serve at the FCAA. Specifically, the AmeriCorps Members will serve as Outreach Workers and will be responsible for a variety of tasks in the Frederick Community Action Agency. The AmeriCorps Member will serve Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
AmeriCorps is a national service program sponsored by the Corporation for National Service in cooperation with State governments, intermediary organizations, and service sites. Full-time members receive a living allowance stipend of $14,279 for a one-year (1,700 hours) full-time commitment of service and $7,139 for a one-year (900 hours) part-time commitment of service. Health care coverage, deferment of student loans, training, and other benefits are available if the member qualifies. AmeriCorps members also receive an Educational Award of $6,195 after the completion of 1,700 hours of service/full-time service or $3,097 after the completion of 900 hours of service/part-time service. Perhaps most importantly, members gain invaluable “hands-on” experience by assisting people and communities in need of help.
