WAC 192-170-100

AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers.

(1) AmeriCorps volunteers enroll with nonprofit organizations to provide services within the state. They may enroll in full-time or part-time programs. If you enroll in a part-time program, you can seek and accept other work. You are potentially eligible for benefits if you are immediately available for and seeking full-time work.
(2) AmeriCorps VISTA (volunteers in service to America) volunteers are assigned to public or private organizations to work towards meeting community needs. The contract requires they be available for service each day and evening of the week. AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers are not available for work. You are not eligible for benefits while under contract, even if you received benefits prior to enrollment in service.
(3) Stipends received as an AmeriCorps or AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer are not covered employment. They may not be used to requalify for benefits after a denial for a quit, discharge, or job refusal.
