Our AmeriCorps members serve their community while also improving their lives. Crews of 7-8 young people work mostly outdoors in natural resource conservation projects. They can learn to use a chainsaw, build a fence, and maintain hiking/biking trails. During their 3-month term, members earn certificates, learn natural resources job skills, and celebrate accomplishments. Following the successful completion of a 3-month term, members are eligible to enroll in a 9-month term. AmeriCorps members earn a living stipend and a Segal Education Award for college or industry certifications. Afterward, HOC supports our young adults to begin a career path, post-secondary education, or both.
If you are done with high school or your GED, can commit to 5 days/week, and live in Jefferson, Deschutes, or Crook County, in Oregon, Heart of Oregon AmeriCorps might be for you! Fill out an online application, give us a call, or stop by our offices in Bend and Prineville.
