    About ARI AmeriCorps Rural Intermediary Program

    The ARI Wyoming AmeriCorps Rural Intermediary Program partners with small, rural, and fledgling community-based organizations to transform emergency response efforts into programs that address the core issues that create poverty, health disparities, and food insecurity to begin with. These partnerships allow ARI AmeriCorps to build national service sites across a vastly rural, high elevation landscape to decrease health disparities that leave individuals and families without high-quality preventive health care, prescriptions for chronic illness management, and supplemental wellness programs to promote long-term general health; to increase food production and distribution in communities to feature the highest quality produce, grains, and proteins necessary for a healthy life, and long term, local food production and distribution efforts that engage participants in contributing to the production and distribution process; and to fight poverty through community engagement activities and increasing community-based voice and leadership for safety, health, and wellness.

  • Antelope Butte Foundation

    Sheridan, WY- The Antelope Butte Foundation (ABF) is recruiting for AmeriCorps members to serve in the Antelope Butte Youth Recreation Corps (ABYRC) Program. The ABYRC Program is a youth recreation focused service program that will go from December 7th to August 15th. Twelve ABYRC AmeriCorps members will provide affordable and accessible youth recreation programming 20-30 hours per week in Big Horn and Sheridan County.

    Mountain recreation, historically, hasn't been widely affordable or accessible. Barriers in Big Horn and Sheridan Counties, such as the lack of transportation or financial restraints, prevent many from taking advantage of the benefits of mountain recreation within their own community. “Our board members and staff couldn’t be more excited about having an AmeriCorps Program at Antelope Butte. This program will help us serve our community better than ever” says ABF Executive Director John Kirlin.

    ABYRC AmeriCorps members will provide skiing and snowboarding programming in the winter, mountain bike programming in the spring, and outdoor programming (camping, backpacking, fishing, hiking, and biking) in the summer. Additionally, ABYRC AmeriCorps members will build trails with Sheridan Community Land Trust (SCLT) during the Spring and Summer. “What could be more exciting? ABYRC member’s office is the mountains and you will help create amazing recreation trails” says SCLT Executive Director, Brad Bauer.

    During the term of service, ABYRC AmeriCorps members will receive a living stipend and will be provided with housing and training opportunities. Following the completion of the program, ABYRC AmeriCorps members will receive a Segal Education Award which may be used to pay expenses at eligible post-secondary institutions or to repay qualified student loans.

  • FY20 National Direct Consultation

    As part of the Serve America Act, National Direct Consultation was established to help increase collaboration and coordination among national service programs, which in turn supports the efficient use of national service funds in each state.

    Multi-state (also known as National Direct) applicants applying for competitive AmeriCorps funding are required to consult with the state service commission in the states they are applying to place members. 

    It is strongly encouraged that multi-state applicants (national directs) contact the state service commission(s) as early as possible in order to begin a dialogue related to your proposed placement of AmeriCorps members. This may help inform your application to CNCS based on suggestions the state service commission(s) may offer based on need in the state, existing AmeriCorps program placement, and other factors to consider.

    The link to the form and more information can be found by clicking on the following link: https://amsc.memberclicks.net/national-direct-consultation
