CIS of Central Texas
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
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.
