AmeriCorps Member Positions

AmeriCorps Arkansas

Literacy Action of Central Arkansas is seeking five (5) new team members to spend one year making a positive impact in the lives of families and adults as an AmeriCorps Member! We have three (3) positions in our Little Rock office and two (2) positions in our Conway office available, both starting in September 2018.

Little Rock Office AmeriCorps Members:

Members need to be passionate, self-motivated and ready to serve others. Responsibilities will include tutoring adults in basic literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL), recruiting and training tutors, and raising awareness for Literacy Action. Through this service opportunity, you will have the chance to gain real-world experience working on the front lines not only with literacy issues, but in the non-profit sector as well. You can make a difference and earn an education award that can be used to pay college tuition or pay back eligible student loans. As a part-time AmeriCorps Member serving 20 hours a week, you will receive a living allowance of $6,600 per year, paid in a bi-monthly stipend of $275, before withholdings. Upon successful completion of 900 hours of service, AmeriCorps members will receive a $2,907.50 education award.

What can you get from volunteering?

  • Education award
  • Bi-monthly stipend
  • Opportunity to help adults learn to read
  • Non-profit experience

This is a great way to give back and be involved in the community! If you are interested and would like more information, please email a cover letter and resume to:
