Description

In Washington State, a disproportionate percentage of low-income students and students with special needs are disengaged from school. In the 2015-2016 school year, Washington public schools ranked the second worst in the nation for chronic absenteeism.
In addition, over 60% of low-income students fail to meet grade-level standards in literacy and math. By 9th grade, the course failure rate for low-income students is 35%. Students who end their ninth grade year off-track are four times less likely to graduate from high school than those who are on track. In 2016, the on-time graduation rate for low-income students in the state was only 69%.

WSC members in academic-focused positions serve economically disadvantaged students in high-needs schools, providing personalized tutoring and mentoring to help re-engage them in attending school, raising their grades and preparing for college.

WSC positions are full-time (40 hours/week) for 6-9 months starting November 2018-February 2019.

BENEFITS

• Monthly stipend of $1,307
• Health insurance coverage
• Childcare assistance, if qualified
• Upon successful completion of the service term, an education award of almost $3,000 that can be used to pay for college tuition, pay off existing qualified school loans, or – if the member is at least 55 years of age – can be transferred to a child or grandchild.

Examples of organizations you could serve at through Washington Service Corps:
• Federal Way Public Schools
• Highline Public Schools
• Neighborhood House
