I recently began exploring the potential or partnering with Americorps to potentially offer some paid field placements. I've heard that other schools already have similar partnerships. If you have partnered with Americorps through field, I'd love to learn more! How does the structure work? How many students are able to receive these placements? Any help would be appreciated.
Hi Mike, Anna Stewart has been doing some work on this at Ohio State along with trying to see if there are options for placements in Federal Work Study settings. Feel free to reach out to us if you want to set up a time to chat further.
That sounds good-why don't we connect at some point in March after my initial conversations have concluded? Could you send me days and times when you're free? Mrlynch2@buffalo.edu
