AmeriCorps is a national service program designed to recruit and utilize volunteers to assist the Cattaraugus Education Department mission. AmeriCorps members are not “employees,” they are national service volunteers, who receive a livable allowance, an educational award upon completing their contractual obligation to the Seneca Nation AmeriCorps program. The Member’s core mission is to focus on three priorities:
- Provide academic assistance to students struggling in ELA & Math proficiencies in various sites located in Gowanda, Lake Shore, Silver Creek School Districts and the Saylor building
- Assist in raising awareness in the Seneca community regarding emergency preparation for future natural disasters.
- Supplement Seneca Nation efforts to encourage and expand students appreciation of their language, culture, and history.

The next Seneca Nation Member meetings will be held from 6pm to 8pm on September 22, 2015 in Cattaraugus and September 23, 2015 at the Seneca Allegany Administration Building. These meetings are for Seneca Nation of Indians Members only.
