Milwaukee Teacher Education Center (MTEC)
175 AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 2800 student and adult volunteers to conduct service learning projects in the community to address issues in the areas of sustainability- ecology, economy, education, and equity. By the end of the program year (September 2012-June 2013) MTEC's goal is to increase the use of service learning as a teaching strategy because we believe that it improves teacher quality and increases student engagement. This project will address the CNCS focus area- Education. The CNCS investment amount for this Education Award Program is $140,000.
