Fitz Center for Leadership in Community

Dayton Corps

Dayton Corps is an AmeriCorps program through ServeOhio, which is administered by the Fitz Center for Leadership in Community.

Members participate in weekly AmeriCorps meetings to grow as ethical community members, and further professional and personal development. Members receive living allowances, and members may be eligible for an AmeriCorps education award upon completion of their term of service. We have fall, spring, summer and year-round opportunities available to fit many individuals’ schedules.

Three Ways to Serve

  • Dayton Neighborhood Corps members serve with the City of Dayton Neighborhood Planning Team focusing on facilitating events, attending neighborhood association meetings, compiling lists of community assets, and building neighborhood capacity through neighborhood leadership development.
  • Dayton Education Corps members support Dayton’s children and their families through educational support, homework help, finding resources at the library and other educational programming. Members serve at Dayton Metro Libraries.
  • Dayton Opportunity Corps members support those experiencing housing insecurity and unemployment. Members serve alongside individuals who were previously homeless to support with job readiness skills, healthy living skills, and locating housing. Sites include: Daybreak, Homefull, St. Vincent de Paul Gateway Shelters, and Montgomery County Homeless Solutions.

University of Dayton students and community members are encouraged to apply.
