California Children and Families Foundation
90 AmeriCorps members will recruit an additional 410 volunteers. Together they will serve 2,816 economically disadvantaged young children (ages 2-5) to ensure that these economically disadvantaged children are ready for school in 11 diverse California Counties. At the end of program year one, the children who did not initially meet milestones for school readiness will demonstrate gains as follows: 1154 in social emotional development; 1350 in literacy; and 1028 in numeracy. The project will focus on the CNCS focus area of "Education". The CNCS investment of $ 1,077,522 will be matched with $ 1,547,655.
