EVERY STUDENT DESERVES TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL

How Our Program Helps Students Learn and Grow

The AmeriCorps Student Success Program partners with schools statewide to provide individual support for students so that they can be successful in school and in life. AmeriCorps members work one-on-one with a specific caseload of students to help them strengthen reading skills, increase attendance, improve GPA, and progress towards high school graduation. Students and families may also receive assistance overcoming barriers to education by connecting them to community resources to meet basic needs. 

WITH THIS CONSISTENT AND MEANINGFUL SUPPORT, STUDENTS GAIN THE ABILITY TO:

  • set personal goals
  • be accountable for personal learning and growth
  • establish good study skills
  • develop more enthusiasm for learning 
  • develop a positive growth mindset
  • increase their self-confidence. 

We'd love to have you join us in providing support to help students succeed!
