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. 

"Service members have expanded capacity in community engagement, parent engagement, physical activities and supplemental education activities" 

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

Several local and state-wide AmeriCorps and VISTA programs are looking for Flint-based organizations that are interested in hosting members. To find out more information about any of these programs and how they can help your organization, please contact Corey Archambault at carchambault@unitedwaygenesee.org.

"The AmeriCorps VISTA positions supported an entirely new model of food service delivery as a pilot for summer meals for children and adults. It worked so well that we are expanding the program this year. The community was receptive to the model and it served children that would have otherwise gone without any meals during the summer months!"
