Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
The City of Burlington is asking for 20 FTE AmeriCorps to incorporate cultural competence into organizational systems of city departments, schools and nonprofits. Responding to demographic changes, members will improve accesses to services offered to people of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds and eliminate disparities in their status. Members are recruited locally with an emphasis on those who have experienced discrimination and are ready to advocate for change from within the system.
