Peace Corps Fellows Grant

Governor Quinn and his Serve Illinois Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service announced that the Corporation for National and Community Service awarded 3-point-2 million dollars to four Illinois AmeriCorps programs to better serve communities in the state.  The Western Illinois University’s Peace Corps Fellows Program received a grant of 130-thousand dollars.  Peace Corps Fellows is essentially a pre-professional corps of rural community and economic developers.  The program recruits recently returned Peace Corps volunteers into a two-year graduate program at WIU.  The organization will use the grant funding for tutoring and mentoring at-risk youth, supporting rural community and economic development, and improving the health of underserved communities.  For more information on Serve Illinois, or to find volunteer opportunities, visit www.Serve.Illinois.gov.
