Make an Impact in Your Community
Be a part of the greater good.
As an AmeriCorps Fellow, Cal Lutheran students have the opportunity to pursue their passion for service.
Cal Lutheran is one of eight universities which were selected to join a first in the nation program to help students pay for college through public service targeting challenges in their region. As a program under the Sarah W. Heath Center for Equality and Justice, AmeriCorps Fellows will have the opportunity to make an impact in their communities through valuable hands-on experiences. With contributions from AmeriCorps and California Volunteers, this program has received $340,000 in funding to support these efforts.
Our students can begin applying this spring to be in the first cohort of AmeriCorps Fellows, with their program launching in fall of 2020.
