Volunteer Opportunities

Serve Idaho’s rural communities with the American Connection Corps AmeriCorps program

The Digital Economy Program (DEP) is excited to be selected as a 2024-25 host site for the American Connection Corps (ACC) AmeriCorps program. We’re seeking Idahoans committed to serving the communities they call home, who are passionate about bridging the digital divide to ensure that the opportunity that broadband internet access facilitates can be fully realized so no one is left behind, or offline in the growing digital economy. If you’re looking for a challenging and enriching career building experience and to establish a network of professionals and mentors, we invite you to explore the benefits and opportunities available through service as an ACC member.

Currently accepting applications for service to begin September. The DEP is currently recruiting for Idahoans to serve 1,700 hours between September 2024-July 2025. All AmeriCorps ACC Members serving 1,700 hours receive a $33,000 living stipend, a $7,395 education award and access to healthcare coverage, childcare benefits and student loan forbearance if applicable.
