Louisiana Delta Service Corps
Louisiana Delta Service Corps (LDSC) is one of over 400 AmeriCorps National Service programs. Known as the “Peace Corps of the Delta”, LDSC creates opportunities for AmeriCorps members across the Louisiana Delta region to perform vital services in neighborhoods and communities. We address education, health, and housing needs. Up to 37 members are selected to serve individually or in teams at local public or nonprofit organizations. Members receive a modest living stipend of $13,000 and a $5,775 education award upon completion of the 11 month service year.
