As an AmeriCorps member you will support growth of Montana 10, the system’s signature strategic initiative supporting low-income students in earning a college degree. Montana 10 offers students a set of ten strategies that address financial need, help students build academic momentum, and develop a sense of belonging in college and a purpose for their career. In its initial pilot cohort, the program is realizing dramatic, positive outcomes that have led the MUS to pursue expansion of the program. AmeriCorps service members will focus on researching and sharing best practices, supporting design and development of strategic communications, delivering education and training to campus staff and administrators, and enhancing college and university capacity to deliver the ten core supports that are part of Montana 10.
