We meet every other month for 90-minutes. Our focus is on building relationships, leveraging resources, and learning from each other.
02 / 03Host an AmeriCorps Member at Your Organization
Boost your capacity to serve the community by hosting one or more of our AmeriCorps members at your organization. Driven by a passion for doing meaningful work, these national service volunteers are ready to join a non-profit that aligns with their mission and goals. They have fresh ideas and infectious energy and come prepared to learn, grow, and serve. Let’s find the member who will be the right fit and help your organization and mission thrive.
03 / 03Become an AmeriCorps Member
Organizations in and around Pierce County with a social justice mission from LGBTQIA+ rights to racial and gender equality are looking for fresh ideas, passionate voices, and diverse talent. That’s where you come in! AmeriCorps is a paid volunteer opportunity to serve with an organization serving youth and making a difference in Pierce County. Whatever your passion is, we’ll help you find the right fit. Individuals who have lived experience or identities that relate to youth involved in the justice system are encouraged to apply.
At the Imagine Justice Project our work is incredibly diverse, yet it all focuses on two goals: building a more just future and connecting and uplifting our community and the ones who will lead it.
We believe underrepresented youth should have the opportunity to build a future they love and become leaders in their community. This is why our work is equally focused on dismantling unjust systems, strengthening positive youth development programs, and providing space for community-centered healing. But it takes a collaborative approach to drive lasting change against the harmful systems in place. It will take all hands in, all voices heard, and an open table to all. And it will be worth it.
