Project MARS/AmeriCorps of Big Brothers Big Sisters WNC is recruiting for full-time positions in WNC. AmeriCorps members will recruit, train, match and guide mentors; provide one-on-one and small group academic assistance; and provide resource development (recruit, train and manage volunteers and match resources: food, clothing, school supplies, and services).
Members serve children directly within the schools’ day to day; providing mentoring, academic assistance and resources for success. This will take place throughout the school day, as well at afterschool programming. Members will collaborate with teachers, staff and administration to identify children that would most benefit from mentorship and other services and then recruit community volunteers to aid in providing said services.
Our goal as a program is to both serve the children and provide professional development and experience for our members. Our AmeriCorps members help mitigate some of the negative impacts of poverty.
Project MARS/AmeriCorps members gain skills valued by future employers through trainings, supervision and guidance.
Living Allowance, Health Insurance Stipend, Education Award (at completion of term) and loan forbearance available. Candidates must have a Bachelor’s Degree. Please contact Katie Snow, Program Director for additional information, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
