Neighborhood House’s mission to change the life trajectory of low-income people relies on providing cutting-edge services to the community. It demands excellence from inspired people who are passionate about transforming the conditions of poverty. High-quality programs are provided to diverse communities with a staff of 200 representing a wide range of cultures and 43 different languages and dialects. The team of passionate, committed, high-energy AmeriCorps members is critical to helping Neighborhood House achieve its vital mission.
The AmeriCorps members serve in three Neighborhood House programs: Early Learning (preparing young children to be academically, socially and emotionally ready for Kindergarten); Youth Development (providing academic tutoring to students, as well as college and workplace readiness resources, while also promoting and engaging the students in community service projects); and Self-Sufficiency (providing adults with the tools and knowledge they need to achieve economic independence through employment and improved financial literacy).
