ST. LOUIS — ST. LOUIS - If you've always wanted to travel, and enjoy helping others, AmeriCorps St. Louis wants you.

AmeriCorps St. Louis needs volunteers

AmeriCorps St. Louis is looking for full-time national service volunteers to be part of its 42-Member Emergency Response Team (ERT).

The ERT is a multi-functional rapid deployment group based out of St. Louis, Missouri, that has been called out to respond across the country to floods, tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes, ice storms, and the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The team is thoroughly trained and equipped to support emergency managers and relief agencies in addressing critical unmet needs, particularly in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.

When not responding to natural disasters, the ERT functions as a conservation corps that assists partner organizations with vital natural resource management and restoration projects, including trail building and maintenance, habitat restoration, invasive species removal, and prescribed burning.

The AmeriCorps program provides a challenging and fun opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds, enjoy an outdoor office, learn new skills, earn money for school, and be a part of a supportive, welcoming community.

Benefits include a monthly living stipend, health care reimbursement and an education award.

AmeriCorps St. Louis (ACSTL) is a nonprofit based in St. Louis, Missouri, that runs a 42-Member AmeriCorps National Service program. Our Emergency Response Team (ERT) was one of the first AmeriCorps programs to exist, since the inception of AmeriCorps National Service, and has been operational every year since 1994. 

Our ERT program has three areas of focus: Disaster Response, Environmental Stewardship, and Wildland Fire. Responding to communities affected by natural disasters when we are called is our first priority, while conservation and natural resource management projects are a constant part of the year. 

Our motto is “See The Need, Meet The Need,” which we take to heart in everything we do, as we always strive to reach those who are least served, last served, or never served.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
ACSTL is committed to building a culturally diverse team and fostering an environment of respect and inclusiveness amongst all regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital/civil union status, ancestry, place of birth, age, citizenship status, veteran status, political affiliation, genetic information or disability, as defined and required by state and federal laws. 

Additionally, we prohibit retaliation against those who oppose discrimination and harassment or who participate in an equal opportunity investigation.
