Position: AmeriCorps Youth Leadership 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. One of our programs includes the Refugee Youth Leadership Program. The goals of the youth program are to provide opportunities for refugee youth to develop leadership skills while exploring the complexities of their cultural identities and the inequity created barriers that undermine the success of their communities and families. The program’s leadership development model focuses on three key areas: public speaking, activism and justice focused educational opportunities, and arts based cultural exploration. The role of the AmeriCorps member will be to help further develop and improve the youth program and support and mentor participating youth.
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.
