Next Steps AmeriCorps Application 2023-2024
The Next Steps AmeriCorps Program recognizes, trains, and supports Pell-eligible students by engaging them in service and mentoring.  Seventy selected students will pledge to complete 300 hours of service each in one calendar year, and, in exchange for that commitment, will receive leadership training, support from the campus, PHENND and fellow members, and participate in ongoing supervision and reflection activities.  

The bulk of the service work will be completed in the form of internships—each Next Steps member will be expected to serve in a community organization 10 hours per week and attend bi-weekly supervision/reflection sessions with the rest of the group.  Next Steps members will also spend two hours per week mentoring two incoming first year students, coaching them through the transition from high school to college.

Next Steps is an AmeriCorps program.  Participating students will enroll as AmeriCorps members on a part-time basis.  Students who enroll in this program and successfully complete the 300 hours of service, mentoring, and training, will receive an AmeriCorps Award of $1,459.26. Students who have Federal Work-Study as part of their financial aid package will also be eligible to use their work study award as a regular stipend during their AmeriCorps term of service.


An applicant of the Next Steps AmeriCorps program must:
Be an undergraduate student of sophomore or junior status
Be a citizen of the United States, a United States national, or a lawful permanent resident alien
Be at least 17 years old
Pledge to complete 300 hours of service and training between August 20, 2023 and May 31, 2024
Have an interest in, commitment to, and knowledge of community service, activism, and/or social justice

The Next Steps AmeriCorps Program values diversity and strives to include students from diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

The program will start on August 20 and end on May 31, 2024. We will encourage all students enrolled to finish by the end of May, for those students that have commitments in the summer.
