YouthServe AmeriCorps members support young people through a variety of youth agencies in Western Massachusetts. YouthServe members are trained in Positive Youth Development Theory and use that theory to create positive programming and opportunities for youth to be meaningfully involved in their communities. YouthServe members implement programs that empower youth by building their skills and their confidence. YouthServe members inspire youth achievement by modeling a professional, enthusiastic, and compassionate attitude toward community involvement.
Members must be at least 21 years old and U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals or lawful Permanent Residents. Youth work experience is recommended, but not required. Some work history is necessary, and members must have a valid driver's license and access to reliable transportation. YouthServe does not discriminate on the basis of color, race, national origin, sex, age, political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, religion, or disability. All materials will be furnished in alternate formats upon request.
YouthServe makes reasonable accommodations for interviews and service.
