The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) is looking for organizational partners to host AmeriCorps State Members for the Opioid Outreach and Education Program in Pennsylvania. All healthcare partners are welcome to apply. AmeriCorps State Members can support existing programming or build new community outreach.
NNCC has an AmeriCorps State Program grant, and we are seeking partner organizations throughout Pennsylvania to participate as host sites. The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) considers the opioid epidemic a high priority for service work. Organizations can leverage AmeriCorps members to build outreach and education programs targeted at combating the opioid crisis.
As a sponsor, NNCC provides oversight and support for organizations interested in hosting AmeriCorps members at their sites to address their communities’ needs. NNCC is responsible for AmeriCorps program application submission, AmeriCorps candidate recruitment, AmeriCorps member training, site supervisor support and completion of financial and reporting requirements. The cost for the health center or organization to host an AmeriCorps member is $15,000 per member for the entire year of service.
