AmeriCorps Promise Fellows
New aspects of this year’s program include:
Fellows are primarily capacity builders, although they may provide direct service to children and youth. Their service activities expand, strengthen, and improve a community’s ability to deliver the Five Promises in sustainable ways. In exchange for their year of service, Fellows develop strong leadership skills, earn a living allowance of $13,000, and receive an education award of $4,725 to finance higher education or pay off qualified student loans.
Individuals wishing to become fellows and nonprofit organizations proposing to sponsor fellows in more than one state can find information and applications on the website, http://www.americaspromise.org/partnerarea/PromiseFellows/PromiseFellows.cfm. Applications from sponsoring organizations are due June 15, 2001.
