americorps_20years_700x650LOOKING FOR INSPIRED VOLUNTEERS

Project CHANGE is looking for the most talented and inspired volunteers, young or old,  to apply to join the team for the 2017-2018  service  year. We have some exciting new partners where members will serve to enhance disadvantaged kids with their math and science education, or help children dealing with the personal tragedy of losing a loved one, teach students how to make personal documentary films or assist students who have missed schooling through no fault of their own.

All members are dedicated to supporting students from disadvantaged backgrounds to  improve their academic engagement and help them to see education as their ladder to success in life.

CHANGE is the only AmeriCorps program that exclusively serves Montgomery County, and is strongly supported by the Montgomery County Public School System, and by Senator Chris Van Hollen and County Executive Ike Leggett.  Check below to see if you are eligible to apply. If you have any queries, feel free to call the Director Paul Costello at 240 476 1123.
