At Clark Public Utilities, four AmeriCorps members play a vital role in the success of our StreamTeam watershed enhancement and outreach activities. Each member at the utility serves 10.5 months through the Washington Service Corps, promoting community awareness and rehabilitating local watersheds.


AmeriCorps member benefits include professional development opportunities, a monthly stipend, health insurance, loan forbearance and an educational scholarship.

How it Works

AmeriCorps is a national service program through the Corporation for National and Community Service that supports many different service opportunities. Members are placed with local agencies to make the community and environment healthier and safer while increasing their knowledge and skills. They receive extensive training and support for their individual positions, as well as various team training and development opportunities.
