<p>In Heart of Oregon Corps AmeriCorps Program, members come together to improve their community and their individual lives. Heart of Oregon AmeriCorps provides opportunities for diverse young adults, ages 17-27 to become a positive part of the community. Members serve on a Heart of Oregon AmeriCorps Crew for 6 months, working towards their GEDs or diploma, preparing for college, and gaining work experience. As AmeriCorps volunteers, members earn a living stipend and a Segal Education Award for college. After, HOC supports our young adults to begin a career path, post-secondary education, or both.</p>
<p>Our new incoming cohort will be taking part in land stewardship project on public lands throughout our Central Oregon; our projects include fuels reduction, trail maintenance, habitat restoration, and invasive species removal. This year, the Heart of Oregon AmeriCorps members will be camping during the majority of their spring/summer hitches,&nbsp; working in Wilderness areas, and taking part in a new education component of the program. We are excited to get the new members started on the right foot!</p>
