For secondary students, AmeriCorps members in the AEIOU program provide 1:1 support to build foundational academic skills, improve attendance and grades, make up credits, and get on track for high school graduation.
Here’s a story from a parent at Cottonwood High.
“I would like to thank Abdul and Samia for their great job in helping Yahya and other students graduate high school on time. I didn’t know much about school systems and credits requirements for graduation. At the beginning of the school year, I thought Yahya was on track to graduate and going to school every day, but when I received a call from Abdul and Samia who interpreted for me (English is still hard for me), I was confused to learn that Yahya was not on track and was skipping most of his classes. All the school administration, especially the AmeriCorps members, Abdul and Samia, helped and worked hard with Yahya to graduate this year.”
