About ConnectiCorps

ConnectiCorps is an AmeriCorps program that provides a new and creative approach to responding to the effects of COVID-19 in Connecticut’s nonprofits and communities. We seek to place civic-minded, passionate leaders at those nonprofits which have been adversely impacted by COVID-19 and provide critical services in the areas of food security, anti-poverty services, and/or housing. 

The Benefits

Members who successfully complete 1,200 hours in their service term will receive (approximately) a $14,400 stiped and a $4,300 Segal Education Award Grant. Members who successfully complete 900 hours in their service term will receive (approximately) a $10,800 stipend and a $3,000 Segal Education Award Grant.

Serve as a Member

Serving as a Member can be a meaningful opportunity for recent graduates, people taking a gap year, young professionals or people looking make an impact within their communities while gaining valuable work experience and learning about nonprofits in Connecticut.

Become a Service Site

ConnectiCorps Service sites are nonprofits that provide services in food security, housing/shelter, antipoverty or other related service areas. Sites host Service Members at no cost but must provide daily supervision of Members placed at the organization. In turn, Members provide hundreds of service hours to increase your organization’s capacity.
