Iowa Campus Compact is seeking interested Iowa institutions of higher education and Volunteer Centers of Iowa for our 2019-20 Campus Compact AmeriCorps program. The goal of the program is to support human resource capacity for strong community-campus partnerships that make impacts on nonprofit organizations and create learning opportunities for students. Current college students and full-time graduates can serve in roles that build campus capacity for partnerships aligned with their Civic Action Plan and build nonprofit capacity for strategic partnership goals.

Host sites that commit to partnership best practices and a large member cohort may request funding for personnel time to supervisor their AmeriCorps members.
