AmeriCorps is a national service program dedicated to working in local communities to affect change through service. With the support of the OneStar Foundation, CitySquare operates one of the largest AmeriCorps programs in Texas, leveraging more than 300 AmeriCorps members every year who serve in the greater Dallas area and in Houston. CitySquare AmeriCorps members provide support to nonprofits working to: 1) Increase academic engagement among economically-disadvantaged youth through out-of-school time educational programming, 2) Alleviate food insecurity through the provision of emergency food assistance and summer meals, or 3) Improve economic opportunity for adults through case management and workforce development. In return for service, AmeriCorps members receive a biweekly living allowance and an education award that can be used for tuition or student loans! Interested in becoming an AmeriCorps member?
