Published by Elizabeth Hammel on

SCI Social Capital Inc is excited to announce the release of the 2023-2024 SCI AmeriCorps Host Site Application. An opportunity for youth-serving nonprofits and local government agencies to build youth and volunteer engagement capacity, selected SCI AmeriCorps Host Sites will welcome an SCI AmeriCorps member for up to 10 months.

The SCI AmeriCorps program, founded more than 15 years ago, addresses the need to connect youth with the people, experiences, and resources that increase their prospects for success. As we continue to strengthen communities by cultivating connections, we look to engage varied Host Site Partners and SCI AmeriCorps Member candidates to serve the needs of Greater Boston communities and their youth.

Your Organization can host an SCI AmeriCorps Member to BUILD CAPACITY IN BOTH of the following areas:

  1. Youth Enrichment Programs for middle and high school age youth through Developing and Implementing Community Service-Learning projects, Engaging in Youth Mentorship, and Coordinating other Enrichment Activities (e.g. homework support, healthy lifestyles, post-secondary success, etc.).
  2. Volunteer Engagement that enhances youth enrichment programs through Volunteer Management Systems, Volunteer Recruitment, Ongoing Volunteer Coordination, Volunteer Event Planning, and Community Outreach and Relationship Building.

  • A full-time SCI AmeriCorps Member serving at your organization from September – June (10 months; approx. 40 hours/week), selected in partnership between SCI and Host Site.
