Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
85 College Forward AmeriCorps members will leverage 135 new volunteers to provide intensive college access and success services, to ensure that nearly 7,700 economically disadvantaged students from Central Texas, Houston/Gulf Coast, and one additional region of Texas have a chance to attain a college degree regardless of family income or background. By the end of the three year project period (2012-2015), 3,728 students in the program will enroll in college (85%) [Note: this figure includes students who did not participate in our High School Program but who have been enrolled in our College Persistence Program by partner programs], and 309 students will complete a post-secondary degree. This project will primarily address the CNCS focus area of Education: College Access and Success. The CNCS investment of $972,876 will be matched with $621,761.
