Crim Fitness Foundation

The Crim Fitness Foundation cultivates accessible, vibrant communities in Flint and Genesee County in Michigan that encourage people to lead healthy lifestyles by integrating physical activity, healthy eating, and mindfulness into their daily lives and mentors other communities to do the same. Formerly “CrimFit Programs” Department, the Neighborhood Impact Team looks to continue to reach students and families in the school community with health centered programming and expand their role in the Flint community by centering the neighborhood as a foundation for self-efficacy and well-being by using place-based education to improve policies, systems, and the built environment. Service Members have regular opportunities to connect with other AmeriCorps Members and staff at the Crim, and participate in staff and professional development opportunities at the Crim. Flint is located in Mid Michigan (about an hour from the capital, Lansing, and an hour from Detroit) with a population of about 80,000 people.

The Crim Fitness Foundation has been a partner with FoodCorps since 2011, and the 2023-2024 school year will be the first year that there will be two School Nutrition Service Members to directly support efforts around school meals in Flint. Working in coordination with the Crim staff, Food Service staff, school staff and administrators, and community organizations, Service Members in this position will be integral to supporting nourishing meals in schools. This is an excellent opportunity for individuals who can take initiative on long-term projects, are creative problem solvers, adaptable and comfortable with ambiguity when starting new projects, and have the ability to build connections with a wide range of people.

FoodCorps service members at the Crim are part of a Michigan cohort that includes 14 service members in four communities across the state. The state staff, Erin and Seema, love creating opportunities to connect in person or virtually, and will always make time and space for sharing a good meal with our Service Members. FoodCorps Service Members have the opportunity to take advantage of a state rich in cultural and geographic diversity. We boast urban, suburban, and rural sites with their own unique set of engaging characteristics, as well as thought-provoking challenges. We welcome all to apply for an experience to learn, give back, and grow!

  • Flexible/adaptable and comfortable with ambiguity when starting new projects
  • Creative
  • Organized
  • Friendly and outgoing personality to build relationships with a wide range of stakeholders
  • Some experience in food service or working with kids is helpful
