AmeriCorps application deadline nears

The Brownsville Herald

College-age young men and women can earn money while making a difference in

their communities through a program sponsored by the Cameron County Extension

Service.

The extension service is accepting applications for the 2002 term of the South

Texas AmeriCorps Initiative through Dec. 15, County Judge Gilberto Hinojosa

announced Wednesday.

Successful applicants can expect to take part in beautification projects, tree

planting and educational outreach efforts and in return, they will be eligible

to receive up to $14,025 in allowances and awards plus health benefits and

childcare.

In order to qualify for the program, applications should be at least 18, have

a high school diploma or general equivalency diploma, a valid Texas drivers

license, a reliable automobile with liability insurance and speak English and

Spanish.

They should also possess a strong desire to serve their community and a

commitment to protecting the natural environment, Hinojosa said.

Applications and information on the program can be obtained by calling (956)

399-7757 or toll free at (866) 544-0830.
