From Mark Duncan, Lead Outreach Specialist, Washington Service Corps:

Our partners have anywhere from 1 to 30 members serving in their organization. These AmeriCorps members typically serve 10.5 months, starting in September or October.  Larger teams require greater supervision and management but is a good option for organizations with the right capacity to support such a team.  If you are looking for a unique partnership for part-time members or shorter duration programs – call us! We love being creative and will work with you to meet the mission of your organization.
