Highlander Charter School
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Based on the success of the Charter Corps' pilot year, six RI site-managed public charter and independent schools will enroll 40 Corps members to provide in-class and afterschool academic support for 1000 students annually. Corps members will receive support for educational and service-related employment in distressed RI communities. The Charter Corps will also aid local families by offering support to the most needy students while providing adults with a mode for creating change personally, professionally, and publicly.
