What could a team of 8 dedicated volunteers do for you?
Think back to the most productive volunteer days that you have ever hosted. Now imagine that much work getting done EVERY DAY for weeks on end especially if you aren’t currently accepting volunteers to assist with that work!
AmeriCorps NCCC is now accepting concept forms/RFPs for Round 2.
AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) have been deploying teams across the United States for high-impact service projects, and we’re looking for non-profits, faith based organizations, government entities, public schools and Native American Tribal Councils interested in hosting a team between October 19 – December 13, 2022.
Our teams are diverse in their ability to do both physical and administrative projects, so don’t shy away if your project is office work. This could be tasks such as tax projects, phone banking, research projects, website and social media, curriculum development, logistical work for the year, etc. We also receive very few applications of around Veterans and/or Military Families, therefore any interested projects would stand a better-than-usual chance of receiving a team!
This is a chance to not only perform critical service, but to introduce our diverse 18- to 26-year-old members to your agency’s mission – and perhaps spark their interest in non-profit, government and public sector careers. We realize the nation is currently dealing with a public health pandemic so by partnering with AmeriCorps NCCC we can begin rebuilding and strengthening communities. Our teams are fully vaccinated and have been trained to strictly adhere to CDC and state/local Covid-19 guidelines as well as agency worksite guidelines to ensure not only members safety but community safety as well.
There is no cost for sponsoring (hosting) an NCCC team. However, sponsors must provide: 1) lodging for the team (camping is acceptable, time and weather dependent), 2) training on the specific skills needed, 3) a supervisor to serve alongside the team at least 20 hours a week, and 4) project tools and supplies. Note that lodging with an outside partner (nearby summer camp, state park, retreat center, church, etc.) is acceptable as long as they can fulfill our Covid-19 housing guidelines especially with shared spaces. The team could potentially serve at that location for a portion of the project to reduce or eliminate any costs, as long as the organization is an eligible nonprofit or government entity and the service is meaningful.
Our deadline for this round of concept forms is Wednesday, June 29th.
