Apply today to participate in the Indiana Financial Capability Corps (IFCC)!
Prosperity Indiana is seeking Service Site organizations to participate in the new Indiana Financial Capability Corps (IFCC), an AmeriCorps program.
IFCC AmeriCorps members serve within community organizations that serve low- to moderate-income families and individuals and that are interested in integrating financial capability into their existing programs. IFCC will use Prosperity Now’s tool called Building Financial Capability: A Planning Guide for Integrated Services to help organizations assess clients' current financial capability, determine goals and appropriate services to meet clients' needs, evaluate current programs and community resources for building clients' financial capability, and develop and implement a plan to connect clients to services. The IFCC program is designed to enhance existing programs and services and benefit a wide range of organizations serving low- and moderate-income communities.
Prosperity Indiana is offering the placement of 20 AmeriCorps members with community organizations throughout Indiana. Each member will serve a minimum of 900 hours between January 22 and July 13, 2018. AmeriCorps members will be provided training, a living allowance, an education award at the successful completion of their service term, and loan forbearance for qualified student loans.
Interested organizations can learn more by reviewing the service site application and the service position description. Contact Rachel Mattingly firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-454-8542 if you have any questions about the program or application.
Download the Word version of the application to apply. Service Site applications are due no later than December 20, 2017.
What is AmeriCorps?
Commonly known as the domestic Peace Corps, AmeriCorps is a national service program governed by the Corporation for National and Community Service (a federal agency) and administered by Serve Indiana (a state agency). AmeriCorps strengthens communities by involving people in service to meet local challenges.
AmeriCorps functions as a network of local, state, and national service programs that engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service to meet our country’s critical needs in education, public safety, health, the environment, and human needs. AmeriCorps members serve with nonprofits, public agencies, and faith-based and community organizations. Since 1994, men and women have provided needed assistance to millions of Americans and continue to address critical needs in communities across the nation through their AmeriCorps service.
