Delivering resilience and risk reduction programs to children and adults
Providing training and resilience tools and techniques to community leaders
Contributing to capacity building within host organizations
GatorCorps Members will be deployed for national service to Jacksonville, Gainesville or Cedar Key, cities that have a working relationship with the Florida Institute for Built Environment Resilience through the Florida Resilient Cities Program. During the period of service, key activities will focus on a) delivering educational programs to both children and adults related to resilience and risk reduction, b) delivering training and resilience tools and techniques to community leaders and c) contributing to capacity building within the host organization.
Members will receive a living allowance (e.g. $833.92 bi-weekly for full-time member), health coverage, a suite of professional training and development opportunities, childcare assistance if eligible, and an education award (e.g. $6,895 for full-time member) upon successful completion of service. GatorCorps members will serve a minimum of 450 hours during the service year (before July 31st), with the maximum being 1700 hours (full-time), and for up to four terms. Whether you are ready to serve full-time, or you are a student able to commit 10+ hours a week, talk to us today to see if GatorCorps is right for you! You must be a U.S. citizen, national or permanent resident to qualify for national service.
Upcoming GatorCorps cohorts are expected to start in October 2023, May 2024, and August 2024. Your service will start with orientation and training at Headquarters.
