Extension’s new Public Health AmeriCorps is looking for volunteers throughout Ohio to serve as AmeriCorps members. These roles are not jobs, but rather service positions in communities with benefits beyond typical volunteering (such as a monthly living allowance).
There are AmeriCorps hubs in multiple Ohio locations, so this opportunity is available to people across the state. Corps members are paired with OSU Extension staff in their area to identify health issues, implement public health initiatives, and advance health and prosperity in their communities. In addition, Corps members get hands-on experience and exposure to public health related career opportunities.
