LINCOLN, Neb.-- Lincoln Parks and Recreation is taking applications for positions with the “Youth on the Move” AmeriCorps program. The Department got funding for 15 full-time members for the 2014-15 grant year.

The “Youth on the Move” program provides services to at-risk youth to help get them engaged in school, inspire them to give back to their community and teach them how to make healthy life choices.

AmeriCorps members will work with about 200 public school students to develop individual plans using the “40 Development Assets” framework, a nationally-recognized research-based model. The program will also use the “Igniting Sparks” curriculum developed by Search Institute, a national leader in working with schools and organizations to solve challenges for young people.

“Youth on the Move” AmeriCorps members will work at City recreation centers, Community Learning Centers, cultural centers and other local non-profit organizations.

Full-time AmeriCorps members are required to complete 1,710 hours of work. They receive a living allowance of $12,100 and an education award of $5,550. Those interested in applying should contact Deb Buckman at 402-441-4907 or dbuckman@lincoln.ne.gov.

Funding for “Youth on the Move” is made possible by a grant from ServeNebraska, Nebraska Volunteer Service Commission.
