Meet Our Newest AmeriCorps Members
Last week was training week for the first round of AmeriCorps members joining us this Fall. AmeriCorps, a network of national service programs, is charged nationally with “helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.” Our newest members will primarily serve in our JustLead afterschool programs.
Being part of the AmeriCorps national service program gives our newest members the opportunity to make a difference in our community, get money for it, and earn a scholarship to help with their higher education costs.
As part of their orientation and pre-service training, Emerald Youth prepared our newest AmeriCorps members on how to run an effective, safe, and impactful program. Each day last week, AmeriCorps members thoroughly learned about timekeeping, nutrition, First Aid and CPR, safe transportation, etc.
We are looking forward to seeing the positive impact they will have on the lives of the kids attending our programs.
