HOGC AmeriCorps Program

Positions Available!

Updated: 10 Oct 07

The Hands On Gulf Coast AmeriCorps Program is a team based service experience drawing members from across the country as well as the local community to commit anywhere from two to eleven months of service to the Gulf Coast region’s recovery from Hurricane Katrina. By placing members in our own volunteer service programs and with community partner organizations, we address some of the housing, education, and community needs of Coastal Mississippi. Our program is funded through a grant from the Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Service, in partnership with local and national foundations, corporate sponsors, and generous individual contributions.

For Program Year 2008, HOGC will be offering a variety of AmeriCorps Member positions allowing individuals to commit to service that will help us address the following issues:

  • Local and non-local volunteer engagement
  • Home reconstruction
  • Community Green Space redevelopment
  • After school program development and support
  • Issue area education
  • Service learning activities
  • Volunteer Leader training
  • Disaster preparedness and response

We are currently recruiting for members to fill full-time positions beginning 7 January 2008. See the schedule for more dates and deadlines and the position descriptions for more detail.
