Looking for your next step and interested in serving others? Check out FEMA Corps – a national service program for individuals who want to make a difference in communities, gain emergency management experience, and give back.
FEMA Corps, a track of AmeriCorps NCCC, is a national service program for 18-24 year olds who are interested in emergency management and passionate about disaster relief. FEMA Corps members serve with a team for ten-months, and travel the country working directly with FEMA on emergency management related projects. Teams have responded to most major U.S. disasters since the program’s creation in 2012.
In addition to the benefits of engaging directly in emergency management projects and working with FEMA staff, FEMA Corps members also receive a living stipend, and their housing, food, and transportation costs are covered during their 10-months of service. Members who successfully complete their term of service also receive an education award in the amount of at least $5,730 dollars – which can be used to pay for school costs or to pay off qualified student loans.
FEMA Corps is looking for qualified applicants to serve beginning in July 2015. To apply, please visitmy.americorps.gov. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. The application deadline is April 1st, 2015!
