Thirty AmeriCorps members will provide academic support services to help 240 elementary and secondary students with exceptional needs succeed academically. As a result we intend to increase the number of children in out-of-home placement who graduate from high school and matriculate into college. This 3-year project beginning July 2012 and concluding in August 2015 focuses on the CNCS Education area. The CNCS investment of $24,000 will be matched with $82,000 and enable placement of Members at 16 sites across the U.S.
