AmeriCorps Builds Lives through Education
AmeriCorps Builds Lives through Education (ABLE) is an education focused National Service program. We collaborate with schools that share our mission of increasing the academic success of students in Buffalo, NY. ABLE mobilizes men and women in national service to revive and strengthen educational environments, expanding opportunities for today’s youth and transforming America’s future—one student, one classroom, and one community at a time. WHAT DO ABLE MEMBERS DO? ABLE members serve the community by providing social/emotional/behavioral skills support, as well as math tutoring, in grades 4-10. ABLE members can be found in the classrooms and after school programming of public, private, and charter schools throughout the city of Buffalo. All ABLE Members will be trained in three evidence based interventions (Positive Action, I CAN Learn, and Check & Connect), which will guide their work with students throughout their term of service.
