Find out more about the AmeriCorps program.
State & National AmeriCorps members are expected to complete 1700 hours with their agency over the course of 11 months. VISTA members do not have an hours requirement, and will complete their service over the course of 12 months.
Upon completion of service, members will receive the Segal Education Award, equal to $6,895 for the 22-23 grant year. You can find out more information about the Segal Education Award here.
State & National members get hands-on experience working with families, adults, youth, and learners of all ages to promote economic mobility and community. VISTA members build capacity of MOBC to ensure our programs operate efficiently, promote collaboration among departments, and increase our organization's reach.
All of our members will serve at sites throughout East Nashville, either at our main center, or in schools throughout the community. AmeriCorps is a year of service, where members earn a living allowance. AmeriCorps State & National members earn $19,100 over the course of their term, and VISTA members earn $22,882 over the course of their term. In addition, both VISTA members and State & National members receive an additional $500/month for a housing allowance. At MOBC, we also have potential for housing placements, subject to availability.
