Food Bank of Central Louisiana Recruiting AmeriCorps Members
The Food Bank of Central Louisiana will host an information session about their AmeriCorps program on August 3 from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. at the Westside Regional Library, 5416 Provine Place, in Alexandria.
AmeriCorps Members are vital to the Food Bank of Central Louisiana. As part of the team, AmeriCorps Members assist with distributing food across the 11-parish service area and pack and sort food for distribution.
AmeriCorps Members receive benefits including paid living allowance, education award, student loan deferment, skills training and employer networks.
AmeriCorps, the federal agency for volunteering and national service, provides opportunities for Americans to serve their country domestically, address the nation’s most pressing challenges, improve lives and communities, and strengthen civic engagement.
Each year, the agency invests more than $800 million in grants for local nonprofit, community, tribal, and state organizations; places more than 250,000 AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers in intensive service roles; and empowers millions more to serve as long-term, short-term, or one-time volunteers.
