MORGANTOWN, W.Va.


AmeriCorps is looking for 500 mentors and community coordinators for a summer program that helps 3,000 West Virginia children maintain and improve reading skills.

Energy Express is an eight-week program offered in rural and low-income communities. It's run by AmeriCorps and the West Virginia University Extension Service. It also provides children with good nutrition.

Mentors are college or college-bound students willing to help children study reading, writing, art and drama. They also make family visits and complete a community service project.

Community coordinators recruit volunteers, help raise awareness and involve family and community members in a child's learning.

For 300 hours of service, mentors and coordinators get an $1,850 living allowance and a $1,175 Segal AmeriCorps Education Award, good toward college tuition or loans.
