AmeriCorps is a national service program that enables Americans of all ages and backgrounds the ability to complete a service year with non-profit organizations all over the nation. Members use this year of service to address a critical community need. In exchange for their year of service, AmeriCorps members receive a living allowance, education awards, student loan deferment, and various other benefits.

They act as a liaison between Habitat for Humanity's construction staff and outside organizations' volunteer groups. They track the volunteer schedules and volunteer hours using the program Volunteer Matrix. They welcome volunteers as they arrive at construction and repair sites, facilitate morning sign-ins, collect waivers, and provide an orientation to the volunteers at the beginning of the volunteer shift. They also take pictures of the volunteer groups and send and analyze volunteer satisfaction surveys. The hours are Tuesdays - Saturdays from 7:30am - 3:30pm.
