Operation AmeriCorps is Coming to Flint, MI

CNCS has announced that Flint. MI, will be one of 10 communities nationwide to become part of the agency’s new Operation AmeriCorps initiative with a focus on education.

The Community Schools AmeriCorps project, led by the City of Flint, will support 80 AmeriCorps members during the next two years to provide after-school and summer programming for K-6 students at three local elementary schools. Flint will expand its community school model as a way to transform local education and increase student achievement.

“This new partnership will offer enhanced educational support and renew Flint schools as neighborhood hubs, while engaging more Americans in national service,” said Flint Mayor Dayne Walling, an AmeriCorps alum himself. “It is an honor for Flint to be selected for this innovative AmeriCorps project.“

“I salute the City of Flint, Flint Community Schools, the Michigan Community Service Commission, and the local community partners for this visionary project that will have a transforming impact on the community and its young people,” said Wendy Spencer, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service. “Through Operation AmeriCorps, this city will come together to ensure more Flint students succeed in school and in life.”

Operation AmeriCorps is a CNCS initiative for local and tribal governments to use AmeriCorps as a transformative catalyst to address a high-priority community challenge. Previous Operation AmeriCorps announcements have been made for New York City; Tucson, AZ; and Pawtucket, RI; and additional grantees will be revealed later this month.

The best ideas come from the American people. Everyone has a story to tell, everyone has a part to play.

All across the country, ordinary Americans are doing extraordinary things in their communities to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world. Every week, we will invite these Champions of Change to the White House to share their ideas to win the future.

Watch the event live on 5/1 at 1p.m. ET at whitehouse.gov/live and learn more about the #WHChamps at go.usa.gov/3BzaQ.
