If you plan on committing to Hands On Atlanta's Volunteer 300 program, and would like to receive $1,000 for college tuition/student loans, please join us for the mandatory Volunteer 300 training for this event.  Hands On Atlanta Program Director La'Keisha Hughes will be on Hands for the training, and will provide a comprehensive walk-through of its guidelines, and answer any questions about the program
The East Atlanta Kid's Club Mentoring Program will be the priority vehicle through which we commit our service, helping to empower today's youth for tomorrow's challenges (If time constraints do not allow participation with East Atlanta Kids's Club, while not preferred, other organizations are available to serve.)  Upon completion of the program, Atlanta alumni who have not completed 2 terms of AmeriCorps will be eligible to receive a $1,000 Segal AmeriCorps Education Award.
Please review the section below for more information on the program.
General Guidelines
The Member’s term of service begins on June 27, 2006 and ends on December 31, 2006. This term of service may only be extended by the Member and Program, in writing, if the Member’s service has been suspended due to compelling personal circumstances (as defined by AmeriCorps provisions) or if the Member’s service has been terminated but a grievance procedure has resulted in reinstatement.  If you have already received any combination of 2 Ed Awards, you will not be eligible for the Volunteer 300 program.
The Member will complete a minimum of 300 hours of service during this period. Of these hours, a maximum of 20% of these hours may be training, education or other similar approved activities
The Member understands that in order to successfully complete the term of service (as defined by the Program and consistent with regulations of the Corporation for National and Community Service) and to be eligible for the education award he/she must complete and document at least 300 hours of service, where at least 36 volunteer opportunities are fulfilled via direct service working with youth.



Upon successful completion of the Member’s term of service, the Member will receive the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award of $1,000 from the Corporation for National and Community Service, and administered by the National Service Trust.  This award is granted in the form of a voucher for payment that can be used for future educational opportunity at a Title IV institution, or for payment on qualified student loans.
Forfeiture and Limitations to Benefits
The Member understands that his/her failure to disclose to the Program any history of having been released for cause from another AmeriCorps Program will render the Member ineligible to receive the education award.
The member understands that failure to meet any and all the terms of service renders him/her ineligible for any portion of the educational award.  
 If the Member has received forbearance on a qualified student loan during the term of service, and the Member successfully completes the term of service, the National Service Trust will repay a
portion or all of the interest that accrued on the loan during the term of service.
