Volunteer with Americorps!

Each year CCV receives several Americorps positions that offer students of all ages an opportunity to earn scholarship money in exchange for service work. You can choose a term of service of either 300 hours or 450 hours to be completed over one calendar year. Your service can be fulfilled by volunteering at non-profit organizations in your community. You can choose to work at one organization or many – it’s up to you. Some organizations students have volunteered with in the past are:

· The Boys & Girls Club
· Chittenden County Emergency Food Shelf
· The Greater Burlington YMCA
· The Peace & Justice Center

This is truly a great opportunity to earn up to $1,250 in scholarship money through service work for others. To be eligible, all applicants must either be a US citizen or permanent resident and at least seventeen years old.

CCV Burlington will be hosting an informational session on Thursday, October 1st from 3:00-4:00 in their Pearl St. location. For more information please contact Ian Boyd at
