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.

The deadline to register is Friday, November 4, 2022. 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.


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.


New AmeriCorps Staff Orientation will be held online on the Zoom platform. Login instructions will be provided to participants following the close of registration. You can read more about Zoom’s accessibility features here. OneStar is committed to making our events inclusive for people of all abilities. OneStar will ensure live transcripts for all presentations and, for many presentations, advanced copies of the material. If you require accommodations to fully participate in our virtual event, please let us know via your registration so we can make necessary arrangements.
