Program 1

Students in Service

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.  Each SIS member serves 300 hours in their community.  The education award is valued at $1,132.  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.

 

Texas Campus Compact Students In Service Program supports six (6) campus partners in our pilot year (August 1, 2010 to July 31, 2011) in the recruitment of 80 students.  The chosen campuses will find best practices in meaningful community based service learning and civic participation, for "Closing the Gaps" of educational inequity  in Texas, ultimately helping to prepare our state for a better educated workforce and stronger economy.
