CIS of Central Texas
96 AmeriCorps members (30 FT, 26 HT, and 40 Education Award Only QT) will serve as supportive mentors, academic supporters and service-learning project leaders to at least 1,000 students each year. Members will serve at targeted public schools in underserved communities with large at-risk student populations in four Central Texas counties including: Travis, Hays, Caldwell, and Bastrop. At the end of the three year grant period, 3,000 students will have received one-to-one weekly academic support and/or mentoring and 70% of those students served for a minimum of six months will have increased academic engagement. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of educational attainment. The CNCS investment of $711,981 will be matched with $713,612 of non-Corporation funds.
