Executive Summary

AmeriCorps members serving in the Harlem Children's Zone's (HCZ) Peacemaker Program play a critical role in our pioneering comprehensive, community-building initiative called the HCZ Project. The Project is a neighborhood-based network of programs and services that create positive opportunities and outcomes for more than 9,500 children and 6,000 adults who live in a 97-block area of Central Harlem. The 127 MSY (119 full-time and 16 half-times) AmeriCorps members will support three key programs within the HCZ Project to improve the academic outcomes of Central Harlem children and youth from October 1, 2012 -- December 31, 2013. A total of 96 MSY AmeriCorps Members will support our primary focus area of success in school for 2,000 children in grades K -- 5 at seven NYC public elementary schools. An additional 21 MSY AmeriCorps Members will support the school readiness of 237 three- and four-year-olds at our Harlem Gems pre-kindergarten programs. Finally, 9 MSY AmeriCorps Members will support 200 high school youth, preparing them for college.
