AmeriCorps, a federal program often referred to as a domestic Peace Corps, provides a number of benefits to both individuals and community agencies working to improve community health. Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) AmeriCorps provides work experience, a living stipend, health insurance, childcare assistance, educational award and other benefits to individuals, while providing organizations with additional staff capacity to work on important health improvement programs. Marshfield Clinic Health System AmeriCorps has two programs that place members with organizations across Wisconsin focusing on the following:
Our Recovery Corps program is the first of its kind in Wisconsin 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.
