Coming soon: customer feedback survey

How are we doing?

We value your feedback as we continue to focus on program improvement!

Look for an email on December 10 with the first quarterly survey requesting your input about the customer service and technical assistance we have been providing to you.

Survey results will be used to improve our ability to provide the level of service you deserve.

Stories due December 15

Reminder: stories of service can now be submitted in TimeTracker. Don't forget those awesome pics!

Checking in

Our team is here to support you, and actively checking in by phone, email or site visit.

Please take a moment to let your Program Coordinator know how they can help you succeed.

Plan now for winter break

Don't delay! If your service site will be closed due to winter break, start lining up alternative sites and getting them pre-approved. Review our guidelines for more information.

MLK Day: A Day On



Mark your calendar: MLK Day is Jan. 21

As a national day of service, we expect members to serve on MLK Day, either at their site or elsewhere. We are putting together a list of projects that members can connect with if their site is closed or they don't have a project of their own.

More details to come later this month.

Site staff, please support your member in  finding a service opportunity for this day.

Season's Greetings!


Winter blues?

This time of year can be challenging, whether it be the lack of sun, holiday stress, or the busy pace of service well underway (or maybe all of the above).

Avoiding burnout by taking care of yourself is critical. And members, please take advantage of one-on-one assistance through the MAP program whenever you need it.

Staying safe

Accidents happen, even for superheroes like AmeriCorps members.

We've already had two members incur injuries this year, let's try to avoid any more.

Please review site safety rules before the upcoming holidays.

Member evals

Site staff: member performance evaluations are due by January 31. Start planning now.

WA Paid Family & Medical Leave

You may have heard about the new Washington Paid Family & Medical Leave program. A few things to know:

  • AmeriCorps members are not eligible.
  • No financial impact to members.
  • There is no employee / employer relationship between members and WSC.
