Providence benefits

City Year Providence was founded in 1993, and since then more than 1,300 members have served and supported this community. Every year we commit ourselves to improving the experience of our AmeriCorps members and increasing the positive impact they have in Providence.

Stipend

First-year AmeriCorps members earn $630 bi-weekly. Your AmeriCorps stipend is taxable, and the amount of taxes deducted from your paycheck will depend on the number of allowances you claim when you complete Form W-4 (Withholding Allowances) as part of your hiring paperwork. You may change your elections at any time. Please note that federal and state income tax withholding rates are subject to change from year to year.

Paychecks are deposited directly into your bank account every other week. Your first paycheck will be issued on Friday, August 16, 2019, and cover your first two weeks of service.

Health benefits

At any time during your service you may enroll in City Year’s health coverage plan for AmeriCorps members. There is no cost to you to enroll in this health coverage plan, which provides you with basic preventative and routine coverage and is fully compliant with Affordable Care Act requirements.

Many members remain on their parent/guardian’s insurance plan while serving, which may be an option for you. We encourage you to check with that provider network to ensure there are doctors and services in the Providence area which are covered by that plan.

Employee assistance program

Members facing a personal or work-related issue have access to free and confidential support from licensed consultants and counselors. This benefit is provided to enhance the well-being of City Year members and address any concerns that are a barrier to your health and well-being. EAP’s phone number and website will be provided to you via email in August.
