Census Reminder: A Note from CNCS
This is a friendly reminder that census activites are not allowable for service hours per CNCS. As it did in 2010, CNCS has determined as a matter of policy not to allow members and volunteers to engage in census activities during service hours. Being a census taker during service hours is categorically prohibited. Census-related activities (e.g. promotion of the census, education about the importance of the census) do not align with NCCC, ASN, VISTA and Senior Corps objectives. What members and volunteers do on their own time is up to them, consistent with program policies about outside employment and activities.
Application to Serve 2020-2021
It is of great benefit to our kids, schools and communities to have interventionists serve for additional terms of service. MEC welcomes all currently serving interventionists to apply to return to service in the 2020-2021 school year. The MEC team will review each member’s application and will take into consideration member performance during the 2019-2020 school year. The application will be available in mid-March and we will schedule returning member applications after the service term has ended.
Interventionists who return to serve for additional service terms are considered Lead Interventionists and enjoy an increase in the living stipend offered to first term members. Further, serving an additional term of service would offer an additional opportunity to earn the Eli Segal AmeriCorps Education Award (you may earn up to 2 full-time education awards in your lifetime).
