Call for RARE Community Applications 2012-2013
Do you have community building, natural resource or planning projects that you do not have resources to complete? The Resource Assistance for Rural Environments (RARE) Program might be your solution. The mission of the RARE Program is to increase the capacity of rural communities to improve their economic, social, and environmental conditions, through the assistance of trained graduate-level participants, from across the US. These AmeriCorps members live in and serve the communities for 11 months. RARE participants assist communities in the development and implementation of projects for achieving a sustainable natural resource base and improving rural economic conditions. The RARE program is now in its 18th year and over the years it placed more than 395 volunteers and served nearly every Oregon county.
Pre-Applications are due on April 13, 2012. For more information about RARE, including the benefits and the costs of the program, visit their web site. Pre-applications are available online as well. If you have any questions, please email: email@example.com or call 541.346.2879
