Next Steps AmeriCorps Team Leader, Kutztown University

Posted by PHENND on May 14, 2018

PHENND seeks one full-time AmeriCorps member to serve as a Team Leader and help support low-income first generation college students who are themselves enrolled as part-time AmeriCorps members. Team Leaders will be an integral part of the Next Steps AmeriCorps program. This position will be part of a cohort of three full-time members — we are still seeking applications for the Team Leader at Kutztown University (Berks County).

The Next Steps AmeriCorps is designed as a college retention initiate for rising sophomores and juniors who are Pell-eligible graduates of high poverty school districts. The Next Steps AmeriCorps program engages college students in community service, mentoring, supportive workshops and leadership development. Participants known as Corps members, complete 300 hours of community service in the course of one year. Corps are placed with community service placements and also mentor one incoming first-year student as part of their service. Team Leaders will be an integral part of the Next Steps AmeriCorps program and will be placed either at Cabrini University, Kutztown University or Temple University.
