AmeriCorps members are an essential part of providing Red Cross services!

The American Red Cross has 25 open positions throughout Ohio in our AmeriCorps program that will be hired through the end of September! AmeriCorps is devoted to providing participants the opportunity to serve their community in a variety of positions.

Most of the positions currently available involve presentations to groups and schools on a variety of preparedness topics. AmeriCorps members are an essential part of providing Red Cross services and working with volunteers to coordinate these messages. Last year, more than 52,000 students or group members attended these sessions and learned how to protect themselves and their family during an emergency. AmeriCorps members often get involved in other departments at the Red Cross as well, responding to disasters, assessing damage and providing assistance to those affected. As a member of AmeriCorps, personal satisfaction comes in the form of knowing you’ve had a positive impact on the lives of others, often when they need it the most..

AmeriCorps delivers a rewarding service opportunity which includes hands-on experience in preparedness education and disaster relief and recovery. Additionally, members receive benefits that include a stipend, education award, and healthcare benefits.
