AmeriCorps Service Description
AmeriCorps members are volunteers of the Corporation for National and Community Service who are sponsored by a local community organization. In the case of Waynesville AmeriCorps, the Waynesville R-VI school district is the sponsoring organization; the Community Resource Office manages Waynesville AmeriCorps members and their activities.
AmeriCorps members are exclusively involved in education; Waynesville AmeriCorps members serve in various District schools, providing individualized tutoring and teacher aid services. In addition to tutoring in schools, AmeriCorps members also serve in the Club TIGER Afterschool Program where they provide academic tutoring and lead clubs and activities.
There are full time and part time positions open every year at Waynesville AmeriCorps. Those who sign up for a full time position can expect to be assigned to a school within the district for the first half of their day, and then to Club TIGER for the second half of their day - this makes a volunteer's day longer than the average work day. Part time AmeriCorps members will serve in either a school or Club TIGER. A small number of AmeriCorps members are involved in volunteer recruitment.
