What We Do

Download Program Overview (PDF document)

The NoCO AmeriCorps Project places AmeriCorps members, who arrive in Colorado from all over the United States, at mutually agreed upon host agencies where they work full-time for one year. Host agencies develop capacity building projects and provide supervision; organizations may receive an AmeriCorps member for up to three consecutive years.

United Way hosts a Project Coordinator and two AmeriCorps Leaders. These positions provide support to the AmeriCorps members and agency supervisors, and liaise with the state-wide AmeriCorps Office. AmeriCorps supports include skills training, housing, employment experience counselling, event passes, community building, and more.

AmeriCorps member host agencies have included: Alternative Homes for Youth, Arc of Weld County, Boy Scouts of America—Longs Peak Council, Boys & Girls Clubs of Weld County, Connections for Independent Living, Greeley-Evans School District 6, Life Stories: Child and Family Advocacy, Northern Colorado Youth for Christ, Poudre Learning Center, Right to Read, RISE, Sunrise Community Health, and Youth & Family Connections, to name a few!

How We Impact

One of our participants has been serving with her organization for three years. She recently finished her final term with our program and was hired as a staff person at Habitat for Humanity. One of the great things about the AmeriCorps program is that it not only provides capacity building for anti-poverty projects, but also helps to develop a strong workforce for our community.
