Becoming a Partner Site

ShoreCorps AmeriCorps members engage in direct service to build the organizational capacity to address critical needs and assist with volunteer management by partnering with community based organizations, schools, governmental agencies, non-profits, and faith-based organizations.

Sites can choose to have full-time members at 1700 hours (approx. 40 hours/week), half-time members at 900 hours (approx. 20 hours/week), or minimum-time members at 300 hours (approx. 10 hours/week) during the 48 week service year.

The service year starts in August upon receipt of grant funding.

For more information please read our partner site information sheet.

Benefits of Having an AmeriCorps Member at your Agency:

  • An extra individual to help with programming and managing of volunteers to expand the capacity of your program during the service year.
  • Support from staff to mentor, supervise, train, coach, and assist with member development and learning.
  • All enrollment paperwork including background checks and the members’ biweekly stipends handled by  staff.

The Process:

  • Fill out and submit an Interest Form.
  • Sara Heim will contact you to discuss how your organization can best utilize an AmeriCorps member along with the expectations we have for our sites during the service year.
  • Start recruiting! ShoreCorps will create and post a member position description based on your Interest Form.
  • It is up to the site to interview the applicants we send them and choose the best fit.
  • Once you've made your decision you will be asked to complete the partnership packet. A member for your program can not be enrolled until the partnership packet is complete. This will be sent to you via email.
  • It is the goal of ShoreCorps to have all members in place by September 1st 2018.

* Please note: We have a limited number of open slots for new sites and they fill up quickly every year. *
