New AmeriCorps Staff Orientation

AmeriCorps Texas | New AmeriCorps Staff Orientation

New AmerCorps Staff Orientation is a multi-day training for staff at OneStar grantee organizations who are new to their position or new to working with your AmeriCorps program. The purpose of this training is to equip participants with knowledge and best practices to run a successful, compliant, and healthy AmeriCorps program for members and staff. 

New AmerCorps Staff Orientation is offered by OneStar three times a year. Attendance is mandatory for any Primary Fiscal and Primary Program staff members at an AmeriCorps Texas program within the first year of being assigned as a Primary contact.

Sessions include:

  • Overview of National Service and AmeriCorps
  • AmeriCorps Texas Grants Management
  • Compliance and Processes
  • National Service Criminal History Check Bootcamp
  • Program and Fiscal Breakouts
  • Diversity and Inclusion

By registering, you commit to attend all days of training in full. Due to limited space, if you are unable to make this commitment, please allow your spot to be taken by someone who can. Registrants who are “no-shows” for this event may be fined and receive an invoice to cover the cost of training materials, meals, and supplies.

The deadline to register is Friday, March 17, 2023. Once registration closes (or when we reach our maximum capacity), we will confirm your attendance. Additional information about the New AmeriCorps Staff Orientation will be made available to confirmed attendees at that time.


This New AmeriCorps Staff Orientation has a maximum capacity of 20 participants.

Each current AmeriCorps Texas program may register up to two staff members who play a significant role in your AmeriCorps program. If an organization has more than two new staff members, you may register the additional members, but please note that OneStar will first allow staff from other organizations to attend before subsequent members from your organization are confirmed to attend, space permitting. Priority registration will go to Primary Fiscal and Primary Program staff from programs in the AmeriCorps Texas portfolio.

Attendees will be responsible for sharing information and applying knowledge and updates received during the orientation with relevant staff at your organization.


We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully.

To be respectful of those with allergies and environmental sensitivities, we ask that you please refrain from wearing strong fragrances. The use of face masks is optional but welcome for those with health concerns. Hand sanitizer will be available for all participants.

To request an accommodation, please indicate your needs when completing the online registration form. For inquiries about accessibility, contact or (512) 287-2041.
