Public Health AmeriCorps

The Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation (LGMF) is a nonprofit organization that is now a part of Public Health AmeriCorps — AmeriCorps and Center for Disease Control’s new national service program!

We are grateful for the task of recruiting a number of AmeriCorps members who will help us build a community that is healthier, stronger, and more resilient. AmeriCorps members will be serving for LGMF’s programs Leeza’s Care Connection and HUGS (Helping U Grow Strong). 

Our mission is to help family caregivers cope with Alzheimer’s & chronic illness through tips, strategies, & support. The Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation AmeriCorps program offers:

  • Work experience and the development of highly sought job skills (initiative, interpersonal and intercultural communication, adaptability, collaboration, and accountability)
  • Networking for career placement at all levels of the organization served, with partner organizations and throughout the community
  • Build value – in yourself and the position you serve. Organizations often hire members after their term of service because they know what they’ve invested in the member and what they will be receiving

SERVICE DATES:  July 2022 – June 2023 (start and end dates flexible); multiple years of service allowable

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Ongoing.
