Milwaukee Teacher Education Center (MTEC)
Commission AmeriCorps State Fixed Amount Grants FY 2012
135 full-time and 20 half-time AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 2175 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 (October 2012-September 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 $116,000.
