2020-2021 AmeriCorps Members

During its first year in 2009, AmeriCorps GSTC was named one of the “52 Most Innovative AmeriCorps Programs in the United States” by the America’s Service Commissions and Innovations in Civic Participation. It is the only program in the state of Georgia that has been visited by state Governor Nathan Deal. The AmeriCorps GSTC had a 100% recruitment rate for the 2009-2020 program years and has an extraordinary 95% average retention rate since its inception.

Since the AmeriCorps GSTC is one of the few able to offer on-site housing, recruitment occurs nationally, thus further promoting program impact and national visibility. The Georgia Sea Turtle Center (GSTC) has a significant presence in local, regional and national media further increasing the visibility of the AmeriCorps GSTC program. As of 2020, AmeriCorps GSTC has had members from 38 of the 50 states, and the 12 remaining states are not in a specific geographical area as you look at the 5 regions (W, SW, NE, SE and MW) of the United States. This exceptional record of service, compliance, and continued visibility makes the AmeriCorps GSTC an ideal candidate for promoting the importance of national service.

AmeriCorps members are vital to the work we do here at the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Contingent upon annual grant renewal, several twelve-month (September-August) and six-month (March-August) AmeriCorps service opportunities are available at the GSTC each year in the following areas: Husbandry, Research, Education, and Research and Conservation which coincide with the GSTC mission. Not only will you have a great experience, but you’ll have lots of FUN too! If you are interested in becoming an AmeriCorps GSTC member, available service opportunities are listed below:
