Flint, MI Service Plan
In Flint and Genesee County, elected officials, nonprofit leaders, and other partners have recognized the critical role national service members and volunteers can play in addressing the many needs of an economically depressed city. To this end, the City of Flint committed to be a demonstration site to explore what 1 million national service positions nationally looks like at the local level.
Over a five year time frame, Flint and Genesee County intend to expand their national service footprint to include 250 AmeriCorps members (a ten-fold increase from the 2014 baseline) and a comparable number of Senior Corps volunteers. This expansion will go alongside concerted efforts to engage more residents in meaningful volunteer opportunities and promote a culture of service in the community.
