Position: AmeriCorps Educational Program Coordinator
Part time, 1 year position (~20 hours/week)
Start Date: 9/1/2021
Transplanting Traditions Community Farm (TTCF) provides refugee adults, youth, and children access to land, healthy food, and agricultural education and economic opportunities. The farm provides a culturally relevant community space for families to come together, build healthy communities and continue agricultural traditions in the Piedmont of NC. As part of our programs, TTCF provides summer camp and enrichment/tutoring support to refugee families at the farm. The purpose of the children’s program is to increase academic success and environmental and cultural awareness for refugee youth from Burma. Additionally, this program seeks to provide a safe and convenient childcare option for refugee farmers to allow them more time to grow their farm businesses and increase their skills and knowledge in specific areas. This role will provide support and coordination for the children’s summer camp, after-school enrichment activities, as well as adult educational opportunities such as ESL.
This position is a part-time, year-long volunteer service opportunity. AmeriCorps members are not employees but volunteers and therefore do not receive compensation for their service from TTCF. As an AmeriCorps, you will receive a small living stipend of up to $7,550 (paid in monthly installments), childcare (if needed), professional training, and an educational scholarship after completion of service by AmeriCorps.
