Make a difference in your community!
What is the Urban Safety Corps?
Located in various Muskegon County Sites, the program with the oversight of the Muskegon County Land Bank will work with City of Muskegon and City of Muskegon Heights Public Safety to implement initiatives to increase public safety by decreasing victimization and increase community awareness in the urban core neighborhoods in Muskegon County. The interventions employed by the program are intended to reduce blight, support community by promoting communication among residents / organizations and engage volunteers from across Muskegon County Neighborhoods to stimulate not only service but national service as well.
There are multiple opportunities to serve with the Muskegon County Urban Safety Corps. There is recruitment for full-time members to begin in January 2019. Beginning in March 2019 we will be taking applications for part-time and and quarter-time positions for our spring/summer programs.
Current Opportunities: Full Time Positions
There are five full-time positions to begin with our program January 14, 2019. Full time members must commit to an eleven month term of service (1700 hours). Member must also have a flexible schedule as it is common for members to have events during the evening to attend and occasionally on the weekend. Upon successful program completion, members will receive an education stipend of $6,095, and a living stipend of $13,732 during their term (to be distributed in equal increments bi-weekly). Access to healthcare and childcare is also available (based upon eligibility). Members will also benefit from professional development throughout the service year.
Our program is HAPPY to coordinate with educational curriculum components such as a required internship. AmeriCorps can be an excellent way to develop personally and professionally - we are happy to coordinate with academic/internship advisers upon request.
