Corps members (primarily youth) will be placed with existing teachers, staff and volunteer mentors, who together, will provide tutoring, homework help, academic enrichment activities, and for young children, high quality early childhood programs. AmeriCorps members, as they are mentored, will fill a substantial unmet need for families who work and go to school while also assuring the children and youth served reach their full individual potential, entering school ready and staying successful throughout their school years.
