Proposal Information


The New York State Commission on National and Community Service is the NYS Commission charged with administering the federal AmeriCorps program in NYS. Housed in the Agency, Office of Children and Family services, the Commission seeks two student assistants for the Summer of 2022 for up to ten weeks beginning as soon as possible.
