Prepping for post-term

We're excited to announce that we'll be collaborating with Serve Washington and the Employment Security Department to host virtual job fairs in early June for all AmeriCorps members serving in the state!

In addition, we're currently working on new Life After AmeriCorps training and resources to help our members prepare for their next steps.

More details to come soon - keep an eye on your inbox!


Due by May 31

Site staff, the next member evaluation is due by May 31.

This is the perfect time for you to revisit the professional development plan that was hopefully discussed during the first evaluation, and reflect on the progress your member has made.


Survey coming soon

Our second customer service survey will be coming out in May - please let us know how we're doing in supporting you!

During the March Serve Washington commission meeting, WSC AmeriCorps members William Porter (Thurston County Food Bank), Henry Rogatz (Clark County Food Bank) and Marissa Lewis (Emergency Food Network) shared their experiences serving at food banks in the COVID Response Corps. The commission was really inspired by the members' stories and all the work they've done to feed their communities during the pandemic.

2021-22 RFA

Member slot awards for WSC's 2021-22 program year are filling up quickly! Site staff, we highly encourage you to submit an application soon, if you haven't done so already, so you don't miss out.

Please contact us if you have any questions.


Violence resource guide

Hate crimes in the U.S. have notably increased in the last few years, with the recent attacks against persons and communities of Asian and Pacific Islander descent being a distressing example. 

The WA State EAP has issued a guide for those who are targets of - or witnesses to - a hate crime.


COVID vaccinations

Members, if you're unsure of whether you may be currently eligible for a COVID vaccine based on the service you're providing, please consult with your WSC Coordinator.
