Do you have a heart for service? Are you a high school senior or college student looking for ways to pay for college?   Are you out of college and needing to find ways to pay down or postpone your college loan? Do you want to build your employment skills? Are you retired and have a desire to serve? 

AmeriCorps is a federal agency that brings individuals and communities together through service and volunteering to tackle the nation’s most pressing challenges. AmeriCorps provides opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to give their time and talent to strengthen communities across our country. Being part of the AmeriCorps team at The Science Zone will bring the satisfaction of supporting an organization built on providing a service to our community and will provide many lifelong benefits.

With The Science Zone AmeriCorps program, you'll have a chance to build your resume, serve young people, be a part of building a stronger community, earn a stipend,  earn an educational award, and possibly put a college loan into forbearance while serving. 

AmeriCorps is a nationally recognized service organization and becoming a member provides many lifelong benefits. Although AmeriCorps does not offer salaried positions, members receive many benefits which include a living allowance, training, experience, and education awards. The Science Zone is proud to be an AmeriCorps grantee supported by ServeWyoming.

We can work with you to create a schedule that fits your needs.
