AmeriCorps at La Puente

Rural Alliance for Dignity (RAD)
La Puente would not exist without the support and energy of our AmeriCorps members who commit a year of service and are the core of our team. These individuals come from all over the country to serve at the front-lines of La Puente's direct-service programs. While here, individuals serve a full 40 hours a week, take part in community living, and participate in professional development activities (i.e., various trainings, retreats, and community nights).

For more information, or to request an application, please contact Alicia Salazar at admin.volunteers@lapuente.net

La Puente would not be able to operate our programs and services if it were not for the committed service of our full time volunteers and AmeriCorps Members.
