What is Compact Service Corps?

The Compact Service Corps AmeriCorps Program, hosted by Campus Compact offices in Colorado and Montana, is a national service program that connects students with communities through meaningful service-learning, civic engagement, and community service experiences. Compact Service Corps Members serve in positions that focus on increasing academic engagement in K-12 schools; providing primary and preventive healthcare to those living in designated underserved areas; and recruiting, training and managing volunteers for nonprofit and government agencies to build capacity and infrastructure.

Compact Service Corps is funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service, providing students who enroll as AmeriCorps Members and complete their service hours with an education award to support repayment of qualified student loans or payment of current educational expenses.  For more information about the program, visit the program website at http://www.cccompact.org/programs/csc/.

Students make a commitment to complete a specified Term of Service and upon completion of the Term of Service the member receives an Education Award in the following corresponding value. An Education Award may be used for past, present, or future educational expenses (loans, current tuition, books, or can be held for up to 7 years).
