Next Generation of Leaders

AmeriCorps is an opportunity to make a big difference in your life and in the lives of those around you. It’s a chance to apply your skills and ideals toward helping others and meeting critical needs in the community.   National Direct AmeriCorps members lead volunteer teams on every single house that we build and repair; VISTA members pave the way for future growth and service to more families.

Habitat Suffolk is proud to host several AmeriCorps volunteers each year, encouraging service-learning while improving our programs and community.


Benefits Through AmeriCorps

As an AmeriCorps member, you’ll gain new skills and experiences and find the tremendous satisfaction that comes from helping others.  Full-time members will receive health insurance, job training, and personal and professional growth opportunities and those who complete their service are eligible to earn a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award of $5,500 to pay for college, graduate school, or to pay back qualified student loans.  What could be better?
