Deadline nears for Americorps/Vista service year

The application deadline is July 31 to join "America's domestic Peace Corps" - the AmeriCorps and VISTA volunteer programs. The Freemont Public Association is now recruiting volunteers to serve for one year beginning Sept. 1. For information, visit the Freemont Public Association's Web site at and click on Volunteer Opportunities, or call ( 206) 675-3200.
   This opportunity attracts college students who want to gain valuable and varied experience before starting a career, mid-career employees looking to make a change, and retirees who want to make a meaningful contribution with their time.
   Volunteers receive a modest living allowance, health insurance, student loan deferment and training. An educational award of $4,725 is provided upon completion of service.
