AmeriCorps is a national service program that engages Americans of all ages and backgrounds in service to local communities. The Santa Barbara County Education Office operates a local chapter of Americorps in Santa Barbara county. We seek to improve educational outcomes for students through literacy tutoring and volunteer recruitment in schools.
AmeriCorps Literacy Tutors work directly with students in a classroom environment, improving literacy and providing critical student support.
AmeriCorps Volunteer Managers engage volunteers in activities that enrich student learning and improve career readiness. They work in an office environment, gaining skills in the areas of education, business and nonprofit work.
AmeriCorps members serve for one school year. Applications are being accepted now for full- and part-time positions throughout Santa Barbara County. All commitments start with extensive training in mid-August 2015 and proceed till the end of the school year, 2016. Service commitments will range from 5 to 9 hours a day depending on school needs.
