Our AmeriCorps members serve full-time as tutors and role models for students struggling in reading and math. They work in small groups and with individual students to help them get on track to perform on-level by improving their reading and math proficiency. Members also work with teachers and peers on the development of community-wide literacy projects, and plan literacy events for parents and students in the schools they serve. Members also develop their leadership skills in a team setting.

One of the goals of our program is to equip all members with important knowledge and skills before they begin serving at their host sites. In keeping with our goal of fully engaging all members to the best of their abilities, we also expect that more-experienced members with strong skills play a supportive role. As part of your service experience, you will participate in team-based activities designed to enhance your skills in communication, conflict resolution, planning, evaluating, problem-solving, presentations, project development, and much more. You will also receive specific training from the host sites that sponsor the project on which you will be working.
Members may receive coverage under a basic health plan. This plan does not provide dental or vision coverage, and is available for the member only. It does not cover the member’s spouse and/or dependents. The program provides workers’ compensation insurance for all AmeriCorps members.
