Executive Summary

Executive Summary

Wyandotte Nation proposes to have 2 AmeriCorps members, who will assist area high school seniors in their respective areas of need. The assistance will include academic tutoring, college search and application processes, vocational training interests, career aptitude assessment, as well as education on work force entry. Services will be offered at the Wyandotte Nation Library at the Tribal Headquarters, in Wyandotte, OK, and will benefit not only high school seniors that are Tribal Citizens, but seniors from the entire community. At the end of the project, there should be a significant improvement from the beginning of the project. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional # of leveraged volunteers, who will be engaged in tutoring and prepping for their future after high school.

This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of Education. The CNCS investment of $25,412 Amount of request, will be matched with $9,769.
