Montana colleges, universities, and their nonprofit and school partners are eligible to host direct-service AmeriCorps members (beginning in the summer of 2022) to help remove barriers to postsecondary education and build capacity to support student success.

The Montana Campus Compact staff will host a Zoom webinar and provide a brief overview of the programs, and application process, and provide examples of successful AmeriCorps and VISTA campus placements.
