North Helpline is proud to be a partner site for Washington Service Corps. Volunteers through this program receive a stipend, education award upon successful completion of service, training, health coverage, and childcare assistance if eligible. Currently, North Helpline is seeking three AmeriCorps members to serve our neighbors. Positions would start September 1st and continue until May 15th (8.5 months). Members who serve in these roles work directly with our neighbors to provide access to nutritious food. Members will direct volunteers to ensure operations run efficiently.

These positions require members to stand for long periods and be able to lift 30lbs repetitively.
