Position Title:

AmeriCorps Member

Service Term Dates:

June 3, 2019- August 16, 2019

Service Term Type and Hours:

Minimum Time- 300 hours

Service Hours:

Equal Heart AmeriCorps members serve the minimum numbers of hours for their respective member type. Members must also serve the entirety of their service term dates; completion of service term hours does not negate this. Weekly service hour averages include holidays off. All members are expected to participate in centralized AmeriCorps trainings – including, but not limited to initial kick-off training and Life After AmeriCorps training. Members are also required to participate in national service days including 9/11 Day of Service, My Good Deed Day, Make a Difference Day, King Day of Service and National AmeriCorps Week, if applicable.

Primary Duties:

All summer members’ activities are related to operations of the the Columbus Park and Rec s Summer Feeding Program that provides food to children during the summer months. Specific activities will vary. However, all can include: preparing meals, performing temperature checks, documenting food production records, loading and unloading food onto vans, delivering food to communities, and interacting with children.

This job is highly interpersonal and requires that members work well with others. Members must be able to accommodate changing work conditions and diverse points of view. Members must learn to balance both program identity and AmeriCorps identity.

Essential Functions:

Adhere to responsible work habits, such as reporting for service on-time, staying on task, being friendly and helpful on site and in the community, and maintaining a professional manner and appearance. Members are required to complete and submit a biweekly timesheet to the appropriate onsite supervisor for signature and approval.

Members are required to call in to the appropriate site supervisor and any relevant site staff when absent or late to the program or scheduled service event. Chronic tardiness and absenteeism is grounds for suspension and/or dismissal. Members who miss three consecutive days or more of scheduled service due to illness or other compelling circumstance, such as a family emergency, must provide a doctor s note or other similar documentation explaining the reason for the absences.

Members must have a strong commitment to community service, to communicating effectively with staff, with fellow members, community partners and AmeriCorps staff. Members must also exhibit a strong work ethic (attendance, record-keeping, completing timesheets in a timely fashion, etc.). Members are required to adhere to all codes of conduct and or related policies and procedures of Equal Heart and AmeriCorps.

AmeriCorps members serving with Equal Heart have recurring access to vulnerable populations, and as such all members are required to undergo a three part National Service Criminal History Check. Their position is contingent on the results of this check.

Members are required to wear the AmeriCorps logo at all times of service.

Disaster Relief Effort:

In the event of a local, state, or federal disaster declaration, AmeriCorps members may occasionally need to deploy to an affected area (in-state or out-of-state) to participate in response or recovery operations for up to 60 days. During this time, service hours spent in response to that event may be counted towards the total required member hours of a given member. Any given member will spend no more than 120 days on disaster related activities in a given member year without the prior consent of CNCS unless otherwise specified in the program’s approved grant and program design (in the case of programs with a Disaster focus area).

All of the above duties and responsibilities are essential position functions subject to reasonable accommodation.

AmeriCorps is available to all, without regard to religion, race, color, national origin, gender, political affiliation, disability, sexual orientation, creed, or veteran status.
