AmeriCorps National Planning Grant FY 2012

Executive Summary

This planning grant will be utilized to develop a National Direct AmeriCorps program which will engage AmeriCorps members (members) to serve low-income elementary school students in the after school setting using a social and emotional learning (SEL) curriculum. The program will operate in Charleston, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia. Members will primarily be made up of college students and recent college graduates. Members will serve within the after school setting, delivering the WINGS social and emotional education curriculum to low-income, at-risk students enrolled in Title I elementary schools. Our expected outcomes are increases in student academic achievement, attendance, and behavior in and out of the school day. Program activities will primarily be in the CNCS focus area of education.
