Program Coordinator-Site Supervisor Working Relationship Program Coordinators and Site Supervisors work closely together: Program Coordinators train Site Supervisors prior to supervising a member (including on use of OnCorps Reports and developing assignment descriptions) It is strongly encouraged that site supervisors be involved in the selection of members by reviewing applications and/or interviewing applicants. Program Coordinators coordinate the member performance review process, provide site supervisors with the required mid-term and end-of-term review form(s), and ensure the process is completed properly Program Coordinators should meet with Site Supervisors at least quarterly, but both should remain in constant communication with each other Program Coordinators and Site Supervisors should keep each other up to date with member trainings, team meetings, Community HealthCorps events, etc.

  19. Grant Writing & Fundraising Activities Members may raise funds directly in support of their service activities up to 10% of their total service time.
  20. Employee Displacement & Duplication An AmeriCorps member is not: an employee of the program is not to be confused with a community volunteer is not to be confused with an intern or student Given that members are not employees, they are not allowed to perform an employee’s duties or otherwise displace employees A member may not fill in for an absent employee Members may not, under any circumstances, perform services, or activities that had been assigned to an employee or volunteer or to an employee or volunteer who has recently resigned or been discharged Programs may not use members, even temporarily, to replace staff (i.e. fill in when they are sick, on maternity leave, and/or offsite for any reason)
  21. Employee Displacement & Duplication (continued) AmeriCorps members may not displace or duplicate the service provided by an employee or volunteer: If staff resigns or is terminated a member may not fill this duty. If staff is out sick, on vacation, etc. a member may not fill this duty. If staff leaves for his/her lunch hour, a member may not fill this duty. A member may not assist staff to complete a duty in his/her job description, unless the member is expanding or enhancing this service in some way
  22. Prohibited Activities Community HealthCorps members or staff members charging time to the AmeriCorps grant may not participate in any of the following activities: Attempt to influence legislation Conduct voter registration drives. Organize or engage in protests, petitions, boycotts, or strikes Assist, promote, or deter union organization Provide abortion services or make referrals* for such services *A referral consists of a name, address, telephone number, and other relevant factual information such as insurance accepted.

  25. Site Supervisor Training Creating the Member Assignment Description
  26. Ideal Community HealthCorps Placements Outreach to vulnerable and/or underserved populations Development of new position(s) Involve service that would not otherwise get done and/or expands availability of services Utilizes unique talents of individual members Does not displace or duplicate any paid employee providing the same or similar service at the site Provides opportunities for Community HealthCorps members to perform direct service and capacity building activities that that address health and/or human needs in the community
  27. What is the purpose of the Member Assignment Description? The assignment description can make or break the placement. It charts a course of action for the member’s term of service A clear understanding of the assignment description helps avoid confusion over what is expected of the member. Use it at the beginning of the term to see what the year ahead should look like. Go back to it every few months to develop short-term plans. If used right, the assignment description provides direction for the member and allows supervisors to talk about what is working and what is not.
  28. While developing the Assignment Description keep in mind… Be realistic – be careful not to overwhelm the member Include direct service and capacity building activities Include activities that enhance or expand services being provided, and are not being done by employees Utilize the unique talents of members Think sustainability! How can this project become sustainable? Include tasks that develop systems for tracking data # of new clients served and who are they? # of volunteers recruited to serve and who are they Amount of dollars and in-kind donations generated Data for milestones - # of successful capacity building efforts (strategic plans developed, programs evaluated, community assessments completed, etc.)
  29. Member Assignment Description Logistics A complete Member Assignment Description must be submitted in OnCorps for each active member within the first 14 days of the member’s enrollment date Specific member activities listed in the Member Assignment Description must align with the Member Service Description and the primary performance measures of the program year A new Member Assignment Description should be submitted if the member’s duties change significantly, or the estimated percentage of time spent on specific activities changes significantly; or if a new Site Supervisor or Program Coordinator is in place Member Assignment Descriptions are approved in OnCorps, and then signed by the member, Site Supervisor, and Program Coordinator

Members enter in and out time rounding to the nearest quarter (.25) hour Members note their daily activities by choosing a service category and using the “comments” box each day Members submit the timesheet electronically, and the Site Supervisor approves the timesheet, certifying that the member served the hours indicated.

MEMBER TRAVEL No hours should be earned for travel to and from home to the service site each day If attending an event or training, service hours may be earned for travel that exceeds the distance the member would normally travel to get to the service site.
