The Apple Corps project is now hiring AmeriCorps Members to serve in our communities. These full time positions are 10½ months long, starting September 1st, 2013. Members receive a monthly stipend of $1,155, plus a $5,550 education award at the end of their term of service.
Apple Corps members will be placed at sites throughout Seattle to provide direct
service to schools and non-profit agencies. Members collaborate with schools,
community groups, and local organizations to educate children about nutrition
and physical activity, improve policies affecting child health, and connect families
to health-promoting resources. Additionally, members will recruit and train
community volunteers in under-served neighborhoods, and develop their own
leadership skills by participating in team trainings and local service projects.
Apple Corps, as a program of Solid Ground, is committed to undoing racism. Members
will engage in year-long training to explore and understand the relationship between institutionalized racism, health disparities, and poverty.
