Northampton Community College was recently awarded part-time AmeriCorps positions for the 2013-2014 academic year, enabling 3 students to earn scholarship money while performing a significant amount of community service.
AmeriCorps, a program of the federal agency the Corporation for National and Community Service, supports over 50,000 people each year who make significant service commitments. In Pennsylvania, many college students enroll in AmeriCorps through the Scholars in Service to Pennsylvania program. Students involved in the program complete 300 hours of service in one year and receive an $1100+ Education Award from the Corporation for National and Community Service. They also receive leadership training and help recruit additional volunteers. As many as 3 NCC students, (2 at Bethlehem, and one at Monroe) will be eligible for these awards for the 2013-2014 academic year, pending federal appropriation.
Scholars in Service to Pennsylvania is administered by the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development (PHENND) and is monitored by PennSERVE: the Governor's Office of Citizen Service. AmeriCorps is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service.
