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 or 402-441-4907.

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

  • Crunch & Lunch is a free summer camp at a local park for youth from kindergarten through 8th grade.
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.
