The American Red Cross in Indiana is excited to offer 35 AmeriCorps positions all across the state. AmeriCorps Indiana Response and Preparedness (RAP) members will provide Red Cross disaster services and build capacity to improve disaster preparedness, response and recovery. Responsibilities include playing a lead role in enhancing and expanding the recruitment and engagement of volunteers and coordinating training opportunities.
RAP positions will challenge participants with a variety of responsibilities in often demanding and unique operational situations not found in the commercial sector. Such experience has proved to be highly respected and valued by future employers.
Other position benefits include a modest living allowance, healthcare and a $5,645 education award upon completion of service.

The American Red Cross in Indiana was awarded more than $395,000 for the 35 AmeriCorps member positions through a competitive application process by Serve Indiana, through the Indiana Commission on Community Service and Volunteerism, and the Corporation for National and Community Service. The continuing level of strong demand for AmeriCorps members is a testament to the value of this program and the powerful boost AmeriCorps members give to nonprofit and faith-based organizations they serve.
