KnoxCorps Members

In the fall of 2012, Knox College and the Galesburg Community Foundation partnered in an innovative civic engagement program known as KnoxCorps. This fall, 13 graduates and current students took up positions with local non-profit organizations to support and staff important initiatives and to bring additional energy and commitment to those organizations. KnoxCorps members work with their host organizations and each other to create new collaborations within the community and launch new initiatives together.

Community Engagement
KnoxCorps Fellows, who are recent graduates of Knox College, serve organizations for approximately 10 months. Undergraduate KnoxCorps members, named Associates, have made a two-year commitment to serve organizations for at least eight hours per week.
