National Youth Leadership Council NYLC
AmeriCorps National Direct FY 2012
The National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) will utilize this planning grant to develop an AmeriCorps program which will engage AmeriCorps members to serve as service-learning coordinators in Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) schools, helping students and teachers develop projects that respond to real community needs. Members will address the needs of military children and their families by engaging youth in service to their communities as part of their classroom learning, resulting in increased youth resiliency, confidence, and engagement in school. Program activities will primarily be in the areas of Education and Veterans and Military Families.
