AmeriCorps National Direct FY 2012
342 AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 1200 volunteers to support the academic achievement and personal development of children and youth in Philadelphia, Trenton, Camden, and Chester. At the end of the three year period, thousands of students who could have been predicted not to graduate high school or to graduate without the skills, attitudes, knowledge and behavior required to succeed, will be on track to graduate high school or will have done so, equipped to succeed in what they choose to do next. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of ensuring a brighter future for all of America's youth. The CNCS investment of $2,624,390 will be matched with $3,093,876.
