Host A Member

National service members can help your organization!

AmeriCorps, VISTA, NCCC or Senior Corps members can help nonprofits, charities, educational institutions, and other community-focused organizations advance their mission, provide services, and build capacity. 

If your organization is interested in hosting a member, the Flint National Service Accelerator can help! The Accelerator can provide technical assistance including:

  • Guidance on finding a suitable AmeriCorps program to meet the needs of your organization
  • Completing the application process
  • Recruitment and member support
  • Development member position descriptions
  • Project implementation and member trainings
  • Guidance on applying for member match requirements through the National Service Fund
