City Year Applications Due Feb 15th

Friday, February 10, 2012

Hello All!
So far this year, two ECSU students applied to City Year, and we are hoping for more students this year will apply!  Those hired will begin mentoring, tutoring and running afterschool programs this August.  This is a great opportunity to develop professionally and begin your career by helping a community in need.  
Deadline for applications is February 15th, go here to apply:

For those new to City Year, City Year is a proud AmeriCorps program that began in 1988.  It is a 10 month, team based, service program for 17-24 year olds who want to make a difference in the lives and paths of students and communities, through academic support, mentoring, running after school programs, and community and school improvements, as well as coordinating projects and taking on leadership roles.  There are many benefits to the program including $5,550 education award (can be used for grad school or re-paying qualified student loans), federal student loan forbearance, bi-weekly living stipend, eligibility for exclusive scholarships, health insurance, uniform, professional development, leadership development, networking opportunities, and more!  There are 22 City Year sites across the country, including one in Rhode Island. 

Like any job, this is a competitive process, but for ECSU students who are interested in applying, I am always available to answer any questions about the application process and City Year benefits.  For those who are accepted, they will have an amazing hands on experience, while developing leadership experience, and creating their career path.  Many who come to City Year as a corps member grow within the organization, others transfer their skills to work in the fields of nonprofit, education, social services, business, and more.  Please contact me, Audra Lavoie, with any questions: or 401-454-3749 or go to

Thank you!
