NC Campus Compact is currently seeking qualified applicants for the NC Afterschool Corps, an AmeriCorps VISTA project.
The NC Afterschool Corps is a team of individuals who serve full-time for 1 year with a college or community-based organization to build the capacity of afterschool programs that serve low-income children and families. NC Afterschool Corps members will work to recruit and train afterschool volunteers, increase funding and resources to these programs, and expand local awareness of the value of afterschool. Corps members will also enhance civic and community engagement by implementing “Design for Change” afterschool programming, a project-based curriculum that empowers young people to solve local programs through design-thinking and community service. All NC Afterschool Corps members are also members of AmeriCorps VISTA.
Applicants should have a passion for the VISTA mission of fighting poverty and for the goals of the NC Afterschool Corps. Ideal candidates will have experience in afterschool settings or with youth development programs, past leadership in college campus service programs, and interests in volunteer recruitment, fundraising, and design-thinking. Qualified applicants should have strong oral and written communication, networking, and organizational skills. Other qualifications include:
- Bachelor’s degree from a 4-year college or university (preferred)
- U.S. citizen, national, or legal permanent resident alien of the United States
- At least 18 years old
- Ability to commit to a full-time year of service (late July 2017 – late July 2018)
- Able to attend VISTA Pre-Service Orientation July 17-20 and NC Afterschool Corps orientation August 9-11 (tentative dates)
- *We have several sites seeking candidates who are bilingual Spanish/English speakers!*
Our Corps members receive the same benefits as other AmeriCorps VISTA members serving in NC:
- Living allowance (also called a stipend) of about $990/month (pre-tax, paid bi-weekly)
- Education award of $5,815 or cash stipend of $1,500, earned upon completion of your service year
- Student loan forbearance or deferment, if eligible, and payment of accrued interest during service, if eligible
- Healthcare benefits (learn more)
- Non-competitive eligiblity (NCE), a special hiring status when you apply for federal jobs after your service year
- Relocation assistance, childcare assistance, and travel reimbursement, if eligible
- Orientation and in-service training
Our Corps members also have access to a professional development fund, are connected to our network of more than 200 VISTA alumni, and may accept housing assistance provided by the host site. Learn more about VISTA benefits.
Review our NC Afterschool Corps position listing. Then create your profile on my.ameriCorps.gov. Fill out an application – including 2 professional references – and submit your application to our position listing. You are applying to the program, not to a specific site.
Once you have submitted your application through the AmeriCorps portal it is forwarded to NC Campus Compact. NC Campus Compact contacts qualified candidates to request a résumé and supplemental info, then we conduct screening interviews with selected applicants. Strong candidates are invited to a second round of interviews with host site supervisors whose projects may match the candidate’s skills and interests. A candidate’s application may be reviewed by multiple host sites. If selected, candidates receive an offer to serve at a particular host site, and you will have a choice to accept the offer. If you accept, we’ll begin the on-boarding and orientation process.
Our priority application deadline is May 1, but applications are reviewed and positions offered on a rolling basis, so apply early for the best shot at placement.
Term of Service
All Corps members must attend a required Pre-Service Orientation July 17-20. The first day of service is July 21, 2017 and members will serve a 1-year term ending July 20, 2018. (Please note: these dates are still tentative and will be confirmed before final selection.)
View the NC Afterschool Corps F.A.Q. page and the VISTA F.A.Q. page for more info.
PLEASE NOTE: Like all AmeriCorps positions, this position is contingent on available federal funding. North Carolina Campus Compact is currently submitting a grant application to secure these positions; we expect that application will be successful. The agency that funds AmeriCorps is also subject to the federal budget process, and we are hopeful Congress will continue its long-standing, bi-partisan support of the AmeriCorps VISTA program.
