One chance to make your mark

Are you community-minded and services oriented? You may want to become apart of making a difference in MCHA housing communities. We have revolving enrollment periods throughout the year.

AmeriCorps is a national service program that engages thousands of Americans in domestic Peace Corps; getting things done for America by meeting education, public safety, environmental, homeland security, and other human needs. A term of service could be less than one year, depending on summer on annual service.

MCHA has partnered with AmeriCorps for several years offering job training, and great programs for our youth. Youth activities have included: water slides, go-carts, a bouncing castle, face painting, arts, crafts, theatre, and tutoring. AmeriCorps members not only offer their time but genuine love and concern for our residents.

What being a part of the AmeriCorps team could mean for you:
