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 paid community service (though work study) in one year which includes informal mentoring of a first-year student and all training and leadership development. It’s about a 10-hour per week commitment.
