ACE Community Corps


Siena Students Strengthen Communities and Develop as Leaders

ACE Community Corps is an opportunity for Siena students to come together as a team with a mission to strengthen communities and develop leaders. Participants will commit to serving at one or more service sites and attend trainings that will enhance their personal and professional skills. These trainings include but are not limited to: resume building, curriculum development, interviewing skills, career exploration, community development, sustainability and the populations they are working with.

The following are programs within Community Corps:

Students are eligible if they engage in five or more hours per week with a single partner and are willing to commit to a six-week summer internship for two consecutive summers. One of the summer internships can be at the member’s hometown, while the other must be at Siena or with a Siena partner. All internships must be AmeriCorps eligible and follow federal guidelines for serving with the poor and marginalized.
