Dear colleagues,

Please share information below on the CUNY Service Corps program. Applications are currently open and will remain open to students till March 31st. The CUNY Service Corps is open to current full-time undergraduate and graduate students:

The CUNY Service Corps is a CUNY-wide initiative where students can engage in a meaningful service experience throughout New York City, while building up their professional resume and career networks, and get paid $12.00 per hour for a commitment of 24 weeks during the academic year. With over 90 community partners, a peer cohort of over 800 CUNY students, and eight CUNY campuses participating in the program, your potential professional network and service projects are diverse and expansive!

Students who would like to learn more about the CUNY Service Corps should visit the campus Service Corps office at Kiely Hall 111-M, or attend an upcoming information session:

  *   Tuesday, March 4th, 5:00pm-6:15pm, Powdermaker 115
  *   Monday, March 10th, 12:15-1:30pm, Rosenthal Library 230

The application for the 2014-2015 cohort is now open <http://www.cuny.edu/site/servicecorps/students-form.html> and students are encouraged to apply! The CUNY Service Corps focuses on the following for areas:

  *   A Healthier City: Corps members address important community and public health issues, such as chronic disease management, childhood obesity, lead poisoning prevention, infant mortality, violence prevention, nutrition, and food security.
  *   A More Resilient and Greener City: Corps members support projects related to improving the city’s built and green infrastructure and making it more resistant to storm-related damage.
  *   A Better Educated City: Corps members offer valuable supports to students of all ages, such as those in early childhood programs (and their families and caretakers), public middle and high school students, fellow CUNY students struggling with academic and personal challenges, and adult students learning English or preparing to take the High School Equivalency examination.
  *   An Economically Stronger City: Corps members focus on small business development, local budgeting, fundraising for nonprofits and community issues, financial literacy as well as helping eligible families to access tax credits in order to bolster the economic viability and success of distressed communities within the city.
