What happened to all the activity?

I guess most people posting in the years past have finished their NCCC terms and have few reasons to continue posting here, but are there no more LJ people applying or considering applying, like me? I loved reading through all of the old posts - they're exceptionally helpful. But I have questions of my own, and this community is the best place for advice. I would love to see it more active again.

I heard that if you say apply to the Fall 2011 program and get rejected or put on the alternative list that you automatically get accepted to the Winter 2012 program. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

NYC Civic Corps

Hello, I applied to the NYC Civic Corps and I have a phone interview on Tuesday. Any advice? Anyone else applying? Thank you in advance!!

Jul. 10th, 2010



hello all, I'm January, graduated from college about 2 years ago with a B. A. in Anthropology. I have about 7 years of work experience. I have done some youth-mentoring for the community.

I applied to a few Americorps programs about a month ago. I have yet to hear from any of them and upon looking at the status, a few of them were no longer accepting applications. Am I just being impatient, or does it take a while before I will hear back?

Another issue is that I'm from California and I have applied to all New York based programs. Does that make a big difference in being accepted?

Thanks you in advance for anyone that can help me out!

Why so slow, AmeriCorps NCCC Livejournal Community?

 I created this account just to ponder why the board has been so slow. I enjoy reading people's discussions on here. I /really/ enjoyed reading past discussions of people from XV being all nervous together. I kind of want that while I'm in applying for AmeriCorps! I think a reason for the decline is due to facebook's page, but since I deactivated my facebook this month, I can't really participate.

Anyway, I have applied to Winter 2011 for NCCC. I'm Alex Felt. Anybody else down to revive this community's inactivity? :)

Some questions about NCCC

Initially I applied to several Vista programs, but after reading more about NCCC, I think I'd like it more than Vista. I have some questions about the application process and the day to day existence of NCCC volunteers.

1.Are we required to submit any transcripts in addition to the application? Are there any other documents that applicants need to submit?

2. How much is the stipend?

3. Are we allowed to volunteer outside of NCCC while we're active.

4. Did any volunteers have trouble getting home for the holidays.

(no subject)

Okay, I'm planning on putting in my application for Fall 2010 soon but reading through the community has me a little worried. I have ADD and chronic migraines and some past issues that had me in counseling for a little while in high school. Will any of that affect my chances of being accepted?

Also, how does the serve with a friend thing work?

Thanks in advance.

If you apply for more than one position using the same application, are the references notified or asked to submit another reference sheet? 
I applied for NCCC Fall 2010, and State & National Camphill Village Minnesota.

There are some new documents like training programs, manuals, etc.


There are other Americorps manuals etc. with the Peace Corps documents.
