The Indiana RAP Corps, an AmeriCorps program funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service, is now recruiting for the 2012-2013 program year. This program currently has members at eight Red Cross Chapters throughout north and central Indiana.
Members of the Indiana RAP Corps work to increase community disaster preparedness and response by being trained as disaster responders and as educators so they can help the community better plan for disasters likely to happen in Indiana, such as floods and tornadoes. In addition, members of the Indiana RAP Corps recruit and train new volunteers to enhance Red Cross ability to respond to disasters both locally and nationwide.
As part of this program, members receive a modest living allowance and an education award that can be utilized for current or future education. Full-time members are also eligible for health insurance and child care.
Persons interested in receiving an application for the local part-time position at the Kosciusko Chapter of the American Red Cross should contact Kimberly Stout, Emergency Services director at 574.267.5244 x 106 or by email at [email protected] .
