Special to the Bonanza

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Parasol AmeriCorps Program is recruiting its 2014-15 AmeriCorps team. This will be the 15th year of the Parasol AmeriCorps program, which recently was recognized as one of the most innovative in the country. The program has also received several other national awards.

The 2014-15 AmeriCorps program year begins Sept. 2, 2014. Talented and highly-motivated, outdoor-loving, service-minded individuals interested in spending a year giving back in Tahoe are encouraged to apply for the available positions.

The purpose of Parasol’s AmeriCorps program is to engage volunteers in direct service and capacity building to address unmet community needs. The Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation hosts a highly collaborative, full-year program with 12 AmeriCorps members serving in the areas of education, health, social services, and the environment.

Parasol AmeriCorps members earn a living stipend of $13,250, and upon completion of service, receive an education award of $5,550 to be used toward qualifying student loans or to return to school.
