Executive Summary

Future Corps promotes economic opportunity in an inclusive vision of America's Future. The project, supported by National Learn-2-Earn (L2E) Partners, in cooperation with Youth Achievers USA Institute, a national 501c3 public charity, will have twenty-four (24) AmeriCorps members who will serve as Community Asset Managers (CAM) in Marion, IN; Washington, DC Metro Region; Durham-Fayetteville, NC Metro Region; Marietta, GA; Mableton, GA; and Atlanta, GA Metro Region. At the end of the 1st program year [September 1, 2014 - September 7, 2015], AmeriCorps members will be recruited, trained, equipped and deployed as Community Asset Managers responsible for assisting low income Americans in on-line financial literacy and qualifying opportunity youth as assets to their community. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will engage leveraged volunteers as economic stakeholders [6 L2E Partners x 4 Americorps Members x 3 Community Assets x 12 of 20 whole village members] = 864 economic stakeholders (leveraged volunteers) who will be engaged in capacity building activities in support of the local partner's community service priority area. This program will focus on the CNCS focus areas of Economic Opportunity and Capacity Building. The CNCS investment of $315,481.00 will be matched with $525,000.00, of which $320,000 will be funds other than CNCS public funding and $205,000.00 will be applicant funding.
