The Next Steps AmeriCorps program is a youth leadership development initiative that partners college sophomores and juniors with first year college students, designed for Next Steps AmeriCorps members to serve as peer mentors to support students’ first-year experience through community service, mentorship, supportive workshops, and leadership development. Alongside peer mentoring first-year students, Next Steps AmeriCorps members will also be committed to better their own communities through an emphasis of community service.

Next Steps AmeriCorps members will:
Perform 300 hours of community service in one year which includes informal mentoring of two first-year students and all training and leadership development. It’s about a 10-hour per week commitment.
