Students In Service

 

The federal government has indefinitely postponed the Students in Service Program. If/when it becomes available again, updates will be posted.

 

 

What is Students in Service (SIS)?

"The Students in Service program is a part-time AmeriCorps program that encourages and supports college and university students to enroll as part-time AmeriCorps members who provide valuable service in their communities. SIS members make a difference in their communities, gain valuable civic and workforce skills, and upon completion of their term of service, earn an education award.

"By participating in the Students in Service program, the member becomes a part of the AmeriCorps national service network that improves lives and strengthens communities throughout the United States of America."
