The Land of Lincoln AmeriCorps Statewide program is part of the national service initiative signed into law by President Bill Clinton and administered through state governments. The Illinois Commission on Community Service and Volunteerism serves as the state’s lead agency to administer AmeriCorps. The Commission operates under the Illinois Department of Human Services.

Through AmeriCorps, individuals of all ages and backgrounds address the state’s education, public safety, human, and environmental needs through service. Kaskaskia College members provide literacy tutoring for pre-K through grade 8 students in local schools. In return, members receive a living allowance and education award to help finance their college education or vocational training, or pay back student loans after successful completion of service.

For information or for an application, contact Wendy Blythe, B.S., C.W.D.P., (618) 545-3073 or email
