About

CYC is hosting 28 AmeriCorps members who will engage with in and out of school youth to assist in combating the dropout crisis. AmeriCorps members will focus on interventions such as home visits, phone calls, tutoring, and addressing individual student barriers to improve attendance, reduce truancy rates, and re-enroll youth that are dropped out. The goal of the Corpsmember term of service is to engage students, improve attendance, and help support a path toward academic success. Members will earn a living allowance for a service term of 1,700 hours; allowance is $1,253/month (pretax) paid twice per month in increments of $626.50 (pretax). Additionally, members earn an Education Award of $5,775 at the end of a successful term of service, which can be used to repay student loans or for current or future education.
