The focus of the Salt Lake County AmeriCorps Program is Economic Opportunity.

The other major goal of the program is to improve the economic condition of individuals and families by providing activities that increase employable skills and help individuals secure employment. Complimenting both of these goals is helping provide access to mainstream services which increase client assets and personal financial worth. To help with these efforts, AmeriCorps members will also serve to recruit volunteers who can provide services and resources to individuals and families.
