Civic Leaders AmeriCorps Program

Iowa & Minnesota Campus Compact is excited to announce our new Civic Leaders AmeriCorps Program, which will focus on retention of college students who identify as first-generation, low-income, and/or students of color. AmeriCorps members will serve as mentors for college students, providing them much-needed support for academic and personal success. Additionally, the CLAP program will guide AmeriCorps members and mentees through a Civic Competencies training to help them improve their understanding of civic engagement, civic agency, and work towards social cohesion.

The program will be an AmeriCorps State grant and is projected to launch in August 2022.

Final Performance Measure Reports are due 6/24/2022.

  • Report link
  • Questions Overview

  • Note: Sites with multiple supervisors should only submit ONE report for the final progress report. This is to avoid duplication of data and ensure that we understand the full scope of your program’s impact over the academic year.


Formstack Tips

Please note that from your first edit of the report, your “live” editing link will only be viable for 30 days after that date.

We recommend you track your responses outside of this form to help in cases of website/form failure. Our staff does not have access to any saved information that has not been submitted and cannot recover any data that has been lost.

Contact Monique (mellefson {at} compact(.)org) with questions.

In preparation for the academic year’s winter break and the winter holidays in general, the CCA team wanted to help supervisors prepare their members for what to do and not to do. Since this winter break may be extended (2 months!) it’s extremely important that we stay on top of our members’ hours.

Members who plan to serve while home for the holidays/break should work with their site supervisor to submit a Teleservice Request Form. This is REQUIRED for any member that will not be at their regular service site AND be working from “home” for any number of hours.

Hour Planning

  • Look ahead at your members’ hours and projects, plan it out with them
  • Be sure to account for holidays and any “make-up” time they may need to have
  • Use a planning document (like this template)

Timekeeping Policies

  • To remain active in the program, members must log at least one hour during each timesheet
  • Members should have no more than 2 missing timesheets (i.e. not submitted on time); 3 missing timesheets can result in immediate dismissal from the program
  • Only count hours for service activities outlined in their Position Description
  • Hours served on Holidays (i.e. Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Day) are allowed but will require additional documentation of 1) what activities the member performed those days, and 2) why they were necessary
