Esprit de Corps. Community. A sense of belonging. Being part of something bigger than yourself.
However you describe it, this is the intangible benefit of a great AmeriCorps experience. It is transformational when it all comes together. If your program has this, recruitment and retention get dramatically easier.
When you are managing an AmeriCorps program, you are creating community for your members. The good news is, we can teach you how to create the best conditions for a community to thrive. We can also advise you on when it makes sense to step back and empower the members themselves to create it for each other.
On February 15th, we will be looking at Member Engagement from the angle of how to create community for your members.
This workshop is especially important for program staff and supervisors who want members to feel:
- Connection to fellow Corps members
- A sense that they are part of something bigger than themselves and their position
It will also be geared towards programs whose members aren’t spending all of their time together.
Are your members…
- At different sites?
- Working on different schedules?
- Starting at different dates in the program year?
- Doing very different roles?
If so, then we hope you will join us on February 15th to discuss and learn more about engaging your members and building community among the members in your program.
