CIS AmeriCorps Program



(Please read before filling out the application.)

The Communities In Schools of Central Texas AmeriCorps program can be a fun, challenging and rewarding experience for those individuals who come into the program with open hearts and minds.

Before moving forward into our application process, please consider the following questions:

  • What are my reasons for committing to a year of service?
  • Is this the right time in my life to commit to a year of service?
  • Will other commitments in my life allow me to give this program the attention that is needed to be successful?
  • I have evaluated and considered my living situation, and understand that I will be making $1,428/month before taxes as a full-time member, and $714/month before taxes as a part-time member. Please click here for more  financial considerations.
  • CIS of CT AmeriCorps works within the school and the majority of the hours will be during a regular school day from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
