Commit to the full program year As a full-time or half-time member of the AMC BHC/Y program, you are agreeing to commit to the full program year (10 months), to performing service in your community, and to meeting all member requirements for successful completion. If you have reservations, or are just looking to do this “until something else comes along” we ask that you not join our program. Be professional and dedicated AmeriCorps is not for everyone. The hours are long, the pay minimal and the challenges sometimes seem insurmountable. But even with those difficulties, there are thousands of committed citizens who take up the challenge and succeed beyond all expectations. AMC members are making a difference in communities by helping to mobilize community resources and empower others to be a force of change. If you decide to commit to this opportunity, we expect that you will give it your all and be professional, committed and energetic. Anyone can get a job; not everyone can be an AMC member!
