Join the AmeriCorps Guåhan Sustainable Culture team!
We are recruiting for AmeriCorps Guåhan Sustainable program year 2020-2021.
AmeriCorps GSC members will engage in Healthy Futures activities through the development of community gardens and educational facilities, conducting workshops and outreach that focuses on eating fresh local foods and healthy eating habits.
As an AmeriCorps member, you will learn different methods of sustainable food production that help reduce negative human and environmental impact, including hands-on learning about how to safely grow and harvest your own food.
Another focus area is Disaster Services, in which members will engage with organizations and GovGuam agencies to receive disaster preparedness training and will in turn support AmeriCorps GSC in informing other members and beneficiaries on how to prepare for disasters.
AmeriCorps members will also provide Capacity Building for volunteer recruitment,
nonprofit organization assistance and disaster readiness.
It is through these areas of impact that AmeriCorps Guahan Sustainable Culture will enrich the lives of our AmeriCorps members and the lives of the beneficiaries they serve in our community.
