Weight of the Fox Valley AmeriCorps Program is now accepting applications for AmeriCorps members!!

Good afternoon,

I am reaching out as a partner in our work to support healthy communities. As you may have heard throughout the last year, Weight of the Fox Valley (WOTFV) has been planning to implement its own AmeriCorps Program to support and create a culture and environment that supports Fox Valley residents to achieve and maintain a healthy weight at every age.

The time has officially come and WOTFV AmeriCorps Program is now seeking AmeriCorps members to serve for a full calendar year (9/1/2018-8/15/2019) at either full time (average 34.5 hours/week) or half time (average 18.5 hours/week) capacity. Members will educate, create, implement, and promote activities and programs regarding physical activity and healthy eating to Fox Valley youth and adults.

WOTFV is recruiting for 12 members (7 full-time and 5 half-time) to serve with 1 of the 10 WOTFV partner organizations. We are hoping that you will help us spread the word about this WOTFV AmeriCorps program and help us find great members to serve a year! Attached is an informational flyer regarding the WOTFV AmeriCorps Program. Feel free to share this with whomever may be interested and post the flyer at your location!

Members will receive a living allowance during their year of service and upon successful completion, an education award to use towards future tuition costs or student loans. Members are also eligible to put their student loans into forbearance. Full-time members are eligible for basic health insurance and childcare subsidizes (if eligible).

Each of the 10 host sites has different member position descriptions and duties to meet their organizations’ specific needs. The list below provides a general overview of each host site’s member opportunities:
