About SCI AmeriCorps

10-Month Positions Available beginning in September 2021!

The SCI AmeriCorps program supports youth success by increasing volunteerism and providing leadership training and community service opportunities for youth. The goal of the SCI AmeriCorps program is to connect youth with relationships, experiences and resources they need to succeed. Members implement volunteer outreach and capacity building activities that increase volunteer participation, and provide leadership training and community service opportunities for youth.  Since 2007, SCI AmeriCorps members have served at various host sites, who are aligned with the mission of Social Capital Inc.

SCI AmeriCorps members are placed into one of two teams, Volunteer Outreach Coordinators and Youth Leadership Coordinators. SCI AmeriCorps is currently looking for candidates to fill Volunteer Outreach Coordinator & Youth Leadership Coordinator positions for a 1700-hour service period between September 2021 and June 2022:

Volunteer Outreach Coordinators (VOC) will develop and implement practices for effective volunteer engagement at their host sites by focusing on SCI’s core values of relationship development and nurturing local social networks.

Youth Leadership Coordinators (YLC) will serve as leaders to a youth council, and increase the capacity of host sites to implement social capital building, youth engagement and community service-learning as strategies to achieve high educational outcomes.

What is AmeriCorps?

AmeriCorps engages thousands of Americans in service opportunities each year through nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and conservation efforts across the country.  Joining AmeriCorps is a way to put your idealism into action. AmeriCorps programs do more than engage citizens to move communities forward, they also serve their members by creating jobs and providing pathways of opportunity for people entering the workforce.  Check out the video to learn more!

About Social Capital Inc.

Founded in 2002, SCI’s mission is to strengthen communities by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives.  We envision a nation where individuals are strongly connected to their neighbors and play an active role in shaping the destiny of their communities. 

What is “social capital”?

The idea of social capital is that our social networks have value.  Social capital refers to the collective value of all “social networks” and the impulses that come from these networks to do things for each other . Social capital can be measured by the amount of trust and “reciprocity” in a community or between individuals.  Our SCI AmeriCorps members build social capital by connecting community members to the information they need and fostering civic engagement among youth and adults.
