Teleservice Policy

Teleservice

Teleservice is an option that is to be used only using a small amount of a member’s total service hours. Participation in Teleservice may be voluntary and requested by a member. Program members and their supervisors shall comply with APIL and CNCS guidelines and policies for teleservice outlined below.

Members should meet the following conditions to be eligible to enter into a teleservice agreement for teleservice:

  1. Have been an AmeriCorps Partners in Learning Program member for at least 1 month.
  2. The member has proven to the sponsor/supervisor to be a reliable team member (punctual, motivated, professional, thorough, etc.)
  3. The member understands that AmeriCorps teleservice is not a 9-5 assignment; that it is only for a short duration and only to be used on rare occasions, for example, the completion of a special project. 
  4. The member understands that it is not to be used for the purpose of making up missed service hours in an effort to end the service term successfully.

To inquire about Teleservice, the member must contact the AmeriCorps Director.
