About STEP AmeriCorps

What is AmeriCorps?

AmeriCorps is a national service program that provides thousands of Americans of all ages and backgrounds with education awards in exchange for a year or two of community service.

What is STEP AmeriCorps? 

The STEP AmeriCorps program partners with numerous nonprofit organizations and schools in Clinton, Lycoming, and Tioga counties to provide service opportunities to meet the region's community needs. STEP AmeriCorps members will be responsible for expanding the capacity of nonprofit organizations who are focused on addressing those needs as well as enhancing the knowledge of customers as it relates to various health-related programs. In addition, members will leverage additional volunteers who will be engaged in service projects throughout the community. Members as a corps will identify and provide opportunities for diverse individuals and families to become engaged in their communities through volunteerism.

What do we do?

STEP AmeriCorps provides service opportunities to individuals who will integrate into the nonprofit and support their mission through increased capacity and/or increased knowledge related to health initiatives.

What is a Segal Education Award?

After successfully completing a term of service, AmeriCorps members are eligible to receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award. You can use your education award to pay education costs at qualified institutions of higher education, for education training, or to repay qualified student loans. If the member is at least 55 years when they begin the term of service, the education award can be transferred to the individual's child, grandchild, or foster child.
