Executive Summary

Ninety AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 180 volunteers to address the unmet academic engagement of low-income youth throughout the state of Texas at local afterschool Boys & Girls Clubs in as many as 45 communities, many of them serving on and around 11 military bases and/or in 44 rural designated counties. At the end of the 9-month project period, comprising a full academic year, at least 75% of the 2,250 at-risk, low-income children and youth enrolled will complete the program; of these, 90% will achieve the project goal of increased academic engagement. This project is solidly focused on the CNCS focus area of Education. The CNCS investment of $597,214 will be matched with $586,157 of applicant cash and in-kind resources.
