Through Marshfield Clinic Health System, individuals have the opportunity to gain work experience while serving their community through the national service program, AmeriCorps. Health System AmeriCorps members serve a specific role focused on either education and afterschool programming, addiction recovery or volunteer management. Collectively, our members are addressing a wide variety of community needs by serving local organizations.
Marshfield Clinic Health System AmeriCorps currently offers these programs:
Our Afterschool members encourage and inspire local students in school and at afterschool programs. They collaborate with parents and teachers to address the academic and behavioral health needs of each student. Afterschool members provide support and programming to steer youth toward success in school and in life.
Our Recovery Corps program is the first of its kind that trains recovery coaches who have experienced their own recovery journey. These members are tackling the ever-growing issue of substance use at jails, schools, law enforcement agencies and health care facilities. By reducing substance use, Recovery Corps members are helping to build healthier communities.
Members of Volunteer Wisconsin serve at a nonprofit organization in their community, recruiting and supervising volunteers. Members help build a stronger volunteer program, which supports these organizations in meeting a broad range of community needs, including animals and the environment, schools and seniors, and homelessness and hunger.
