Hidden Value in Education Awards

By: Kellie Lager, Recruitment Manager

Double the amount you pay on your loans this year! Many new members worry that not securing a full-time job right out of college will put them behind on their student loans, but serving in AmeriCorps actually puts you ahead! Joining the Conservation Corps gives you the opportunity to better your community, learn valuable job skills, network with potential future employers, and earn an education award that is more than twice average student loan payments. And if you put your loans in forbearance during your service term, you won’t even have to pay the interest on them!
