Recruitment Toolbox

Help us spread the word about serving in our AmeriCorps programs! Here’s some things you can do:

  1. Share your story. Hearing about service directly from people who have done it is our most effective recruitment strategy. Talk about it with your family and friends, with your students and anyone else that will listen!

  2. Post on your social media or post flyers. You can use any of the materials below to post on social media. Or you can print any of them and hang them in coffee shops, community spaces or job boards!

  3. Connect us with your network. What groups of people do you know that would be interested in learning about AmeriCorps? It could be colleges, student groups, other nonprofit organizations, or community groups, etc. You can share the opportunities with them, or connect them with our recruitment staff and we can share!
