The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is a federal agency that engages more than five million Americans in service through AmeriCorps and Senior Corps. Apply to work with CNCS this summer as Coordinator for a children’s book drive in conjunction with the federal summer initiative “Let’s Read.” All books collected will benefit low-income children in the Oakland, CA area. The Coordinator establishes a time-line for the drive, creates the publicity, and enlists local businesses and governmental agencies in the effort. In addition, the Coordinator collects books from donation sites and organizes an event to sort the books. CNCS streams of service (i.e. AmeriCorps and Senior Corps members) will work with the Coordinator to participate in the Book Drive and Book Sort.
