Create a Competitive AmeriCorps NCCC Application #AltusOK

Could your organization use a team of dedicated young adults to launch your program goals forward?  The mission of AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through team-based national and community service.  AmeriCorps NCCC's Southwest Region Campus is based in Denver, CO and serves Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.  NCCC deploys teams of 9 -12 members to serve on service projects lasting an average of 6-8 weeks (although shorter time frames or rotational teams may be available).  We are a fully federally funded program.  Some project examples include construction of low income housing, mentoring youth, trail building and tax preparation, flood response and disaster related projects.
Examples of benefits to past sponsors in our region include:
l  Reach short term goals with additional manpower
l  Catalyst for that new project you want to launch
l  Provide support for large-scale events
l  Added visibility
l  Maximize resources

What are they saying about us?
"I would estimate the value of the work to be  way beyond the hourly wage that we are allowed to accrue  (claim?)by IRS standards.  This building would cost $300,000 to construct new and with AmeriCorps' help we will have done it for 20% of that cost." Mark Oppelt, President of the Land Heritage Institute Foundation, Inc.
"While it was a joy to have them around, the most important contribution they made was their ability to expand our capacity to help homeowners. Through their hard work and weatherization efforts , over 100 homeowners in Metro Denver are able to live at a lower cost. There is no doubt that this group … made a huge difference for us and the homeowners we assist." Kathryn Arbour, Rebuilding Together Metro Denver
