Parks and Recreation Seeks Americorp Members

The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department is accepting applications for eight half-time Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) AmeriCorps members. To apply, contact Deb Buckman at dbuckman@lincoln.ne.gov or 402-441-4907.

The HEAL project encourages physical activity and healthy nutrition habits by offering three different programs:

AmeriCorps members must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or GED. Those in the half-time positions will work 900 hours over 10 months. Members receive a $303.54 living allowance every two weeks and an education award of $2,907.50 upon successful completion.

The HEAL project is made possible through a grant awarded by the ServeNebraska Volunteer Service Commission. For more information, visit serve.nebraska.gov.
