School Turnaround Promise Fellows
20 AmeriCorps members will serve the communities of Minneapolis & Brooklyn Center, MN to support 600 students in grades 6-10 at risk of dropping out of school. Members will leverage an additional 300 volunteers. At the end of a 3 year period, 1,800 youth will be back on track to graduate from high school on time based on school attendance and academic engagement. This project will focus on the CNCS focus area of Education. The CNCS investment of $266,000 will be matched with $270,432 by the MN Alliance With Youth.
