Commission AmeriCorps State Fixed Amount Grants FY 2012
Teach For America-New Mexico provides a critical source of well-trained teachers who are helping break the local cycle of educational inequity. AmeriCorps members teach for two years in low-income schools in communities throughout northwestern New Mexico, going above and beyond traditional expectations to help their students achieve at high levels. At the end of the 2012-2013 school year, 100 AmeriCorps members will have significantly improved educational outcomes for nearly 3,700 students and set in motion their own individual careers that will have a long-term impact on expanding educational opportunity for low-income students.
