The AmeriCorps UOG Volunteer Center is accepting applications until Aug. 31 to fill 70 slots. Members will begin service in September 2020. Experience is not required because you’ll receive that training, but you must be motivated! 

As a member of AmeriCorps UOG, you will engage with high school students, college students, and members of the community to create awareness and provide assistance in the areas of:

  • education
  • environmental stewardship
  • disaster preparedness
  • capacity building (volunteerism)

The AmeriCorps UOG program accepts applicants from the community at large. With the Volunteer Center located on the UOG campus, it is an ideal and convenient opportunity for UOG and Guam Community College students to serve their hours before, after, or in between classes.

Join our team and become a part of our mission to get things done!
