Would you recommend Rural Health Service Corps (AmeriCorps)?

RHSC is a great program to encourage people to get involved in their community. I have been serving with the RHSC for almost a year now and I have learned many professional skills that will help me with my work in community organizing for years to come! It also comes with a living stipend and educational award so you get some compensation for your hard work! I highly recommend serving with RHSC!
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
