What does it mean to be an AmeriCorps Member in one of Campus Compact NH’s projects?
Being an AmeriCorps Member with Campus Compact NH means joining the fight against poverty by rolling up your sleeves and going where you are needed. Members serve across beautiful Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont to expand community resources for low-income students and individuals. Some members help colleges, universities, and K-12 schools to bolster college access and success for low-income students. It might mean creating activities that introduce rural students to STEM careers, recruiting mentors and tutors to help students succeed and thrive, or assessing needs, analyzing evaluations, and recommending new materials, resources, or tools to make organizations more effective. Other members fight food insecurity working within a multi-faceted team to increase state resources. Members work on college campus, with community organizations, and state-lead departments to fight hunger.
Regardless of the project, it means you are a leader, a collaborator, a problem solver, a critical thinker, a learner, and a creator ready to adapt, work hard, and commit to a year of service in the education field. It means you are ready – ready for an adventure, ready for a challenge, and ready to make a difference.
