Energy Express is now accepting applications for Summer 2019 Americorp Workers Energy Express is now accepting applications for Americorp workers for Summer 2019 programs.  

Putnam County Energy Express Programs will be held at Lakeside Elementary and George Washington Elementary.  

Americorp workers must be at least 18 years old, college-bound, or currently attending college.  

Americorps offers two different opportunities: 1.) Mentors who help serve directly with children and 2.) Community Coordinators who serve directly with volunteers. Both positions receive a $1,850 living allowance and $1,252.91 education award. 

College Student Mentors create an enriching environment focused on reading, writing, and art that makes learning fun for a small group of elementary school-age children. Mentors will also eat breakfast and lunch with their students - valuable time to develop strong bonds with students. 

A Community Coordinator connects the parents and community to the site by recruiting, training, and supervising volunteers to read with students. 

Both positions will attend a statewide and local training. At the end of each day, the site team (mentors, community coordinators, and site supervisor) meet to reflect, train and prepare for the next day. Site teams will also complete a community service project.   

Program commitment is June 7 through July 27, 2019 (no vacation permitted during these dates).

Application deadline is May 15, 2019.
