Jumpstart at Pace is currently recruiting for the 2012-2013 corps! Corps members have the unique opportunity to inspire young children to learn, provide individualized attention to help children succeed in school and in life, serve in a local community, work on a team, build professional skills, and earn money. Jumpstart relies 100% on college students, community members, and others to volunteer their time and expertise to serve children and instill a life-long love of learning and literacy. So if you’re looking to be a part of something greater, Jumpstart at Pace is it!
To be eligible for consideration, students must have a federal work-study award and be available either Monday/Wednesday 3:00 p.m.–6:00 p.m. or Tuesday/Thursday 2:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m. with 4–6 additional hours each week for outside service, classroom assistance, and training (some night and weekend work is required). Students are paid $10 per hour for 300 hours of service, and will receive a $1,175 AmeriCorps Education Award at the completion of service.
This is a full academic year of service though AmeriCorps and they’re looking for highly motivated and accomplished students who have a passion for service, the early education crisis, and have some leadership, work, or volunteer experience.
