Are you ready for your next adventure? Give a year of service to your country by becoming an AmeriCorps member.

Each year, 20 AmeriCorps members come from all over the country to join Alpine Achievers Initiative in their mission of serving youth of rural southern Colorado. This is an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone, move somewhere new and unique, and get professional experience before your next step in life.


As an AmeriCorps member with Alpine Achievers Initiative, you will be placed at a service site somewhere in the beautiful San Luis Valley of Colorado. During your year there, you will provide academic assistance to youth struggling with math or literacy, facilitate after school and camp programs.


All work and no play? That’s not how it works here. Our AmeriCorps members are provided with outdoor adventures such as rock climbing camps, backpacking trips, and other group excursions. There are also several retreats throughout the year with professional development trainings to assist you in your service and your future.

We are now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 service year. E-mail resume and cover letter to
