AmeriCorps Cape Cod Logo


Barnstable County, MA., February 10, 2020 – Barnstable County AmeriCorps Cape Cod is holding three Individual Placement Request for Proposal (RFP) release webinars for all organizations that are interested in applying for an Individual Placement for the 2020-2021 program year.


* This year we added an option for current 2019-2020 Individual Placement supervisors to attend a shorted webinar highlighting any updates for the 2020-2021 service year.


Any organization that wants to apply for an Individual Placement is required to attend one of the meetings. If you are unable to attend the dates below, reach out to Meredith and she can provide a recorded version of the meeting.

An Individual Placement is an opportunity for a Service Partner organization to host an AmeriCorps Cape Cod member for one, two, or three days a week. Placements should be project-based and have clear goals and objectives. Individual Placements are long term projects, lasting the duration of the service year (October 2020 – July 2021).


Projects should encompass at least one of the following AmeriCorps Cape Cod focus areas:


  • Natural Resource Management (land and water)
  • Disaster Preparedness and Response
  • Environmental Education
    * Volunteer Engagement is encouraged as a component of all projects *

AmeriCorps Cape Cod members are not employees or interns of the service site, nor should they displace current employees or serve in a regular staff position. The member’s role is to focus on a specific project. To be eligible to apply for an Individual Placement, your organization must be a non-profit, school, or governmental entity within Barnstable County. All Individual Placements awarded will be contingent on continued grant funding.

The Release Meetings:

March 2, 2020 at 10:00AM (Webinar)
March 5, 2020 at 10:00AM (Webinar)- RETURNING SERVICE PARTNERS ONLY

March 5, 2020 at 2:00PM (Webinar)

Anyone who signs up for our Webinar will receive a link and/or phone number to watch and/or call into the meetings. If you are a CURRENT Individual Placement supervisor for 2019-2020 you may attend a shorted “Returning Service Partner” Webinar.
