The Connecticut Commission on Community Service is the AmeriCorps State federal grantee. AmeriCorps members in Connecticut devote themselves to: tutoring, providing after-school programs for youth, reducing crime rates in communities, promoting public safety, improving the environment, increasing early childhood literacy, and developing self-esteem and social values.
Full-time AmeriCorps members serve a minimum of 1,700 hours during the year. They receive a living allowance of $10,197, health benefits, child care, if eligible, and an educational award of $4,725. Part-time members serve 300 to 900 hours and receive an adjusted living allowance and a pro-rated educational award.
To serve in AmeriCorps, you must be at least 17 years of age, and be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident alien of the U.S. You must be a high school graduate or obtain your GED before you receive your AmeriCorps education award.
