The Students in Service program meets critical community needs by engaging higher ed students in service as part-time AmeriCorps members, and fostering within them an ethic of civic responsibility. Students in Service (SIS) participants become part of the AmeriCorps national service network, which improves lives and strengthens communities throughout America.
AmeriCorps members are introduced to local, regional, and national service-learning opportunities, resulting in a regional network of student leaders committed to serving and strengthening their local communities. AmeriCorps members serve in partnership with schools and community-based organizations to address many community issues.
Upon successful completion of a term of service, members are eligible to receive an Education Award to be applied toward outstanding federal student loans or the cost of attendance at a college or university. With rising tuition costs the education award earned upon successful completion of the program helps make service a viable opportunity for students with financial need.
