As part of the National AmeriCorps program, Davenport youth who are 16, 17 or 18 years old and meet eligibility criteria can participate in a summer of service, spending 300 hours learning valuable career development skills while giving back to their community in tangible ways. Youth Corps members are placed within organizations around our community who agree to guide, coach and mentor them as they learn about how to be a contributing member of a workplace team. In exchange, Youth Corps members receive a $2,000 living award stipend, divided over the 10 weeks of service and a $1,175 educational award that can be used for college and vocational training. Applications are due March 13th!
