Mission Statement

Building Community, Changing Lives will provide evidence-based academic intervention and mentoring services for 1,900 students in district-wide (10 elementary sites) currently scoring below proficiency standards on district benchmarks (Gr 3-5) as measured by the STAR reading and math assessments which are directly correlated to the California Assessment for Performance and Progress (CAASPP). By addressing both the academic and underlying social-emotional learning needs, learning will be accelerated and elementary schools will be transformed into supportive, successful learning environments accessible for all students to be uniquely equipped and encouraged to thrive. The District partners will assist with recruitment efforts and placement of AmeriCorps Fellows. Building Community, Changing Lives will add another layer to the combined efforts of the community partners to provide opportunities for both students and AmeriCorps Fellows for successful outcomes now and in the future.

Description

Our program will need 70 AmeriCorps members to provide tutoring and mentoring to our students. Members will be asked to complete 1200 hours of service over nine months. In exchange for their service, members will have the opportunity to further develop skills correlated to education services, build meaningful relationships with teachers and administrators who in turn can mentor the member, and make an impact in the lives of the students they will be working with. Members will also receive a monthly living allowance and be eligible for an education award once they have completed their service.
