Description

Washington Service Corps’ Youth Opportunity program focuses on young people ages 16 to 24 who have dropped out of school or are long-term unemployed, and getting them re-engaged in an educational and/or career path.

As a WSC AmeriCorps member, you can provide training, coaching, guidance, tutoring and supportive services to increase the number of economically disadvantaged youth who will progress on a pathway to education or towards employment opportunities.

Positions include:
- tutoring and mentoring youth in gaining their GED or graduating with a diploma;
- collaborating with local technical colleges and universities to provide exposure to program participants;
- helping youth prepare for and enter college or other post-secondary institution;
- training in career planning, job search skills and workplace skills;
- training in financial literacy concepts to help youth find and maintain self-sufficiency.


BENEFITS

• Modest monthly living allowance
• Health insurance coverage
• Childcare assistance, if qualified
• Upon successful completion of the service term, an education award 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.

Examples of organizations you could serve at through Washington Service Corps:
• International Rescue Committee
• Seattle Housing Authority
• YouthCare
