The IPHA AmeriCorps Program is currently seeking host site locations for the 2017-2018 full-time (11 month) term of service.
The IPHA AmeriCorps Program provides trained, dedicated individuals to help meet locally identified needs in local health agencies across the state. The purpose of the IPHA AmeriCorps Program is for the members to gain valuable public health work experience, while the host sites and the communities they serve benefit from the services the AmeriCorps Members provide.
At this time, we are seeking agencies to act as host sites for members who will serve 1700 hours over the course of an 11 month period. The AmeriCorps Members will begin their term of service in September 2017 and will conclude in August 2018.
IPHA AmeriCorps Members will receive a living allowance, fringe benefits, an education award, health insurance, and professional development opportunities.
The host site agency’s investment for hosting an AmeriCorps Member is $11,325 in cash funding and $2,200 in in-kind contributions.
Recruitment and selection of members will be a joint effort between the host site and IPHA.
Any agency interested in hosting an IPHA AmeriCorps Member for the 2017-2018 full-time term should complete and return the application by 5:00 pm, Friday, May 19, 2017.
