National Service

AmeriCorps State and National is a federal program that engages thousands of Americans in intensive community service each year. Members of KCADV’s AmeriCorps State program, the Economic Empowerment Corps (EEC), commit to one year of direct service providing financial   education for survivors of domestic violence and their children. Members of the EEC engage in direct service to meet community needs through 1700 hours of service at KCADV member programs or collaborative partners. Members begin service on 9/1/2018.

AmeriCorps State and National recruitment is open! 

For more information, please check out the EEC’s Potential Member's Guide.

This guide provides more details about the EEC, a position description, how to apply (with step-by-step screenshots), and benefits. AmeriCorps members receive a modest living allowance, student-loan forbearance, health coverage, and childcare for those who are eligible.  Upon completion of service, AmeriCorps members may receive the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award. See AmeriCorps State and National Frequently Asked Questions.

KCADV receives a federal grant that supports the EEC from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). The EEC is supported at the state level by the Kentucky Commission on Community Volunteerism and Service (KCCVS).
