Be a grant reviewer for the Corporation for National Service
[National CBO Service-Learning listserv]
The Corporation for National and Community Service is seeking people to review 2003 Americorps and Learn and Serve America grant applications this spring, as well as to facilitate grant panel discussions. We are asking you to assist us by identifying people you think have the skill, time, and interest to serve as peer reviewers or facilitators, and to forward this email to them.
The Corporation connects Americans of all ages and backgrounds with opportunities to give back to their communities and country through three programs: AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and Learn and Serve America. Part of the USA Freedom Corps, the Corporation plans to make grants in 2003 to support people and organizations that use citizen service as a strategy to meet critical national and community needs, foster an ethic of civic responsibility, and strengthen the ties that bind us together as a nation.
Reviewers read, score, and evaluate proposals individually, discuss their findings with other members of their panel, and come to consensus on the quality of applications. The panel of reviewers ranks proposals accordingly. Facilitators guide the work of the panel, facilitate panel conference calls, and make sure that all work is complete.
We seek a diverse group of reviewers and facilitators who have expertise in the areas of volunteer management, education, literacy and tutoring, human services, nonprofit management, homeland security, public safety, and the environment. With the exception of federal employees, reviewers and facilitators receive an honorarium for their work.
