AmeriCorps: getting things done

AmeriCorps members work alongside full-time IKIC advisors and school staff to ensure that students- typically first-generation college-going, low-income and minority students – get the information and resources they need to make educated decisions and plans for their future.

AmeriCorps Ohio College Guides commit to 1,700 hours of service (40 hours weekly) over 11 months from August-June.

In return for their service, Guides receive:

  • Significant training and valuable professional development, networking, guidance and support with career and graduate school goals;
  • compensation that includes a $15,100 living allowance and health insurance;
  • a $6,345 Education Award that can be used to repay qualified student loans or future education expenses. (Also, qualified federal student loans may be deferred for the duration of the 11-month term of service);
  • ample training, professional development and networking opportunities and a support and advising system for your avenues of interest – graduate school, teacher licensure program, career building – for “Life After the Corps.”
  • an overall great entry-level career experience.
  • the opportunity to make a difference and help students reach their higher education dreams.
