Executive Summary

The Big Brothers Big Sisters Consortium for Eastern Iowa is an alliance of 8 BBBS affiliates providing mentoring services for at-risk youth in 58 counties across the state. We will engage AmeriCorps members to create a new mentoring initiative, "Life Navigators," targeting disadvantaged youth at risk to leave school without a diploma. Members will identify these youth, engage volunteers, and provide these volunteers with specialized training and support to improve the youths' academic success.
