Description:

* BE THE MENTOR YOU NEEDED *

Want to learn new things and connect with people? Wondering if a role in youth work or education is right for you?

Come serve with the DIAL/SELF AmeriCorps Program (DSAP)! You'll get a chance to see the ins-and-outs of a local school or nonprofit and explore ways to support learning, creativity, and community.

Sites include: Amherst, Easthampton, Holyoke High Schools; Brick House Teen Center, Community Music School of Springfield, House of Colors LGBTQ Center, Musica Franklin, Upward Bound, and more!

DSAP is a 10-month (August 2024 - June 2025) full-time (40 hours/week) AmeriCorps leadership professional development program.

We're accepting applications now for August 2024. 

Apply by February 15th for a better chance of finding a match in the program.

The DIAL/SELF AmeriCorps Program is a leadership program where AmeriCorps Members serve full-time to support positive youth development and strengthen community. They build relationships and make connections that lead to future education and employment opportunities.

* LEARN BY DOING *

Joining DIAL/SELF AmeriCorps is not like a typical job. It's a learning experience, a chance to try on new things, connect with peers, and grow in community. We often have members graduate at the end of the ten month saying that they learned more in the program than they did in a year of college. They made connections, contributions, and grew in ways that set them up for the next phase of their life.

DSAP Members:

  • Serve full-time (40 hours/week) for 10-months (August-June) during the academic school year.
  • Serve Monday-Thursday at a specific school or community center supporting young people.
  • Participate in a weekly learning community and peer support network with their fellow AmeriCorps members on Fridays.
  • Collaborate on team service projects to strengthen leadership skills and community resources
  • Participate in monthly individual goal-setting meetings to make the most of the year and set themselves up for the future. 
  • Receive coaching and guidance from the DSAP staff, site supervisors, and peer cohort, which offer a support network to make service as manageable and rewarding as possible. 
  • Gain skills and clarify their goals. They build friendships and relationships that lead to future opportunities.

DSAP Members receive:

  • $7,395 Education Award (for student loans / college expenses)
  • $1,727/Month Stipend
  • Free health insurance
  • Weekly training, ongoing support & guidance, leadership development, a peer support network, and opportunities to learn directly from teachers, social workers, community leaders, and young people!
  • Most members are eligible for benefits like SNAP (food) and Fuel Assistance (winter heating). Member living stipends do not impact DTA benefits like typical income might.
