We believe you CAN find housing.
We believe you WON’T starve in Seattle.
We believe that you CAN get a gym membership.
We believe that living the #StipendLife is possible. We’re going to teach you how. If you’re new to AmeriCorps or you have AmeriCorps friends who need resources, we welcome you with open arms. This fall series will be a collection of alumni advice, tips and tricks, DIY ideas, and other ways that you can save money and enjoy a better year while under the service of AmeriCorps.
