Entrepreneurial Ventures in Education
AmeriCorps National Direct FY 2011(New)
There is an educational crisis in our country. Only 6% of our children in low-income communities graduate from college. One of the most effective strategies for increasing educational attainment, summer learning, has gone virtually unused. Summer Advantage USA is one of only two scientifically validated summer programs in the country. AmeriCorps members in our program will help ensure the educational success of thousands of children at risk of academic failure.
