Description

A dramatic rise in homelessness. An increasing number of immigrants and refugees struggling to find stability. Thousands of individuals uneducated and unemployed.

Washington State citizens need your help.

Even with the lowest unemployment rate in 10 years, over 21,000 people in Washington State are homeless, with half of them being in King County alone, and almost 20% of them under the age of 18.

Each year, thousands of immigrants and refugees come to Washington looking to create a better life for themselves and their families, but face language barriers and lack the necessary skills to find employment and become financially self-sufficient.

And nearly 15% of Washington youth ages 16 to 24 are not in school and not working.

You can help these individuals overcome their challenges towards a better life.

Through the Washington Service Corps, you can serve in one of many different types of economic opportunity AmeriCorps positions, such as:
• connecting homeless individuals with services and resources, and help transition clients to safe and affordable housing;
• providing training in adult basic education, English language, job readiness, financial literacy and basic computer skills;
• assisting jobseekers in resume writing, and searching and applying for jobs;
• providing tutoring, training and mentorship to help low-income, disadvantaged youth obtain a GED, prepare for and enter college, or become employed.

WSC positions are full-time (40 hours/week) for 10.5 months starting September 2019 - October 2019.


BENEFITS
• Base monthly stipend of $1,450
• Health insurance coverage
• Childcare assistance, if qualified
• Upon successful completion of the service term, an education award of $6,195 that can be used to pay for college tuition, pay off existing qualified school loans, or – if the member is at least 55 years of age – can be transferred to a child or grandchild.
