AmeriCorps GEORGIAAbout AmeriCorps and the City of Roswell

In 2017, the City of Roswell received a $74,000 AmeriCorps grant to begin the planning phase of a project to provide enhanced after school programming to select Roswell elementary schools. Specifically, to work with nonprofit partners Ed Isakson/Alpharetta YMCA and STAR House Foundation to provide additional instruction and homework support to local students.

The grant marked the first time AmeriCorps funding was afforded in North Fulton County and represented a wonderful opportunity to introduce the national service program to the community. A core program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, AmeriCorps is modeled after the ‘Peace Corps’ and invites individuals to commit up to a year of service to organizations whose mission is to meet critical needs in communities nationwide.

During their term of service, AmeriCorps Members may receive a modest living allowance, training and professional development, and other benefits. AmeriCorps Members who successfully complete their term of service, are eligible to receive the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award and, if age 55+, can consider transferring the award to a family member. AmeriCorps alumni are also recognized for their skills and commitment by Employers of National Service.
