East Alabama Services For Elderly (EASE)
An estimated 105 RSVP volunteers will serve in Lee & Russell Counties. The volunteers will serve children, disabled, elderly and frail. For the purpose of this grant's focus area, the volunteers will serve as mentors and tutors at 4 pre-k schools serving as volunteer stations in public school classrooms. The primary focus area of this project is Education: Early Childhood Readiness. At the end of the 12-month performance period, 90% of the 81 students being mentored will show marked improvement. The CNCS Federal investment of $27,973.00 will be supplemented by $17,682.00 in non-federal resources.
