The United Communities AmeriCorps (UCA) program is a regionally-based, individual placement model AmeriCorps program. It is administered by and housed at United Community Action Network (UCAN).
This year, UCA will place 20 full time AmeriCorps members at non-profits, government agencies and schools across Coos, Douglas and Josephine counties. These non-profit, government agencies and schools have developed direct-service AmeriCorps positions for our members. Members serve the majority of their term at their placement sites. However, members do convene regularly for AmeriCorps/UCA trainings, meetings and other activities. Benefits of service include a monthly living stipend, AmeriCorps education award, basic healthcare coverage (for members serving full-time only), loan forbearance (on qualified, federally-backed student loans) and childcare assistance (for full-time members if total family income is eligible).
