Host Sites

What can an AmeriCorps Member do for your Organization?

Members may conduct needs assessments regarding collaborations and partnerships, recruit potential partners, coordinate meetings, and manage volunteers. They are also able to provide outreach, train, teach, and tutor community members, as well as counsel, and recruit volunteers. Gem State members can also provide case management services, prepare client paperwork, prepare training sessions or classes, and help distribute food/ clothing. 

Please refer to the following link for a list of tasks members cannot participate in:

How to get started

Organizations looking to host an Idaho HealthCorps AmeriCorps member should start by completing the Host Site Application. Once a staff member has reviewed the application and has approved the application, the organization will receive an email with next steps including providing a position description for each AmeriCorps position requested. Once approved, Gem State staff will send the organization a completed recruitment flier to share with community members and partners. At that time, the host site may start recruiting members to fill their slots.
