Congratulations on your selection as an AmeriCorps service member in the Appalachia CARES Program. This training will introduce you to the history of national service in the United States, the creation of AmeriCorps and what it looks like today, the Appalachia CARES program, and the host agency, the Clinch-Powell RC&D Council. The training will also guide you through our member handbook and explain the "Do's and Don’ts" of being a member, filling out required paperwork, and performing various service activities. Prior to the training, you should print our Member Handbook to follow along. Please allow TWO HOURS to complete the training.
You must read through all attached documents and complete the entire training slideshow to get credit for the training. This must take place on your FIRST DAY OF SERVICE in our program.*

If your start date falls on a weekend or day you are not scheduled at your site, you may complete the training off-site and count 2 (two) hours of Training and Education time on your timesheet for that day.
