Community Day Care Center of Lawrence Inc
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2012
Fifteen AmeriCorps Community Day Teaching Fellows will serve as apprentice teachers for 300 students, most of whom are low-income, and many of whom are second language learners. Fellows will serve under the mentorship of a highly skilled lead teacher at Community Day Charter Public School (CDCPS), CDCPS Riverside, or CDCPS South in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Fellows will be aspiring teachers, especially career changers or recent college graduates with a strong interest in education. The AmeriCorps program will: (1) maintain and improve our high level of student achievement while allowing us to serve more students; (2) increase our level of engagement in the community; (3) attract talented and skilled prospective teachers to Lawrence. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Education. The CNCS investment of $196,399 will be matched with $265,114.
