New River Community Action -- NRCA AmeriCorps
The NRCA AmeriCorps program engages members in three program service areas; Head Start, Self-Help and Exchange Resource, and the Homeless Intervention Program.
Benefits of AmeriCorps for its members:
Money for college -- After successfully completing a term of service, AmeriCorps members are eligible to receive an education award. The education award can be used to pay education costs at qualified institutions of higher education or training, or to repay qualified student loans. The award currently is $2775 for half-time. A member has up to seven years after his or her term of service has ended to claim the award. Those over 55 can transfer their education award to their child.
Living allowance – AmeriCorps members receive a modest living allowance. You won't get rich from it, but other AmeriCorps members have found that it covers their basic expenses. You will also receive mileage reimbursement.
Help with student loans -- If you already have student loans, you can use your education award to help pay them off. And while you're an AmeriCorps member, you may be eligible for deferment and forbearance on your student loans. Your lender can tell you for sure. If eligible, AmeriCorps will pay for the interest that is accrued on student loans for members who complete their service.
Experience/ Resume Builder -- In addition, you'll get a super career experience and job satisfaction. AmeriCorps members frequently talk about the difference the experience has made in their careers -- from technical job skills to experience. AmeriCorps members get things done, and that kind of results-oriented experience pays off when you're finished with your service and considering your next steps, whether in education or employment.
