FY 2015 AmeriCorps State Commission Education Award Program

Executive Summary

110 AmeriCorps members (full year half-time) will serve in one of fourteen schools--which are located in high-poverty neighborhoods in Chicago--with the ultimate goal of dramatically improving student achievement. The proposed project will begin on July 1, 2015 and conclude on June 30, 2016. At the end of the project period, AUSL's AmeriCorps members will be fully prepared teachers ready to impact the lives of children in Chicago Public Schools classrooms where they are needed the most. This project will focus on the Corporation for National Community Service (CNCS) focus area of Education. AUSL requests a CNCS investment of $44,000 (110 full year half-time members [55 MSY], $800 per MSY).
