Executive Summary

Youth Action Project AmeriCorps (YAP AmeriCorps) proposes 50 AmeriCorps Members to tutor 400 students at 3 San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) high schools, and recruit and coordinate volunteers. Members provide school-based academic tutoring and mentoring in math and English Language Arts (ELA). Members perform academic case management, conduct home visits and track beneficiaries' progress. At the end of the first program year, AmeriCorps Members are responsible for providing 320 students with 35 hours of services, and students will demonstrate improved academic performance in math and literacy as evidenced by increasing grade level proficiency based on the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems (CASAS) assessment. The project focuses on the CNCS focus area of education. The CNCS investment of $277,894 will be matched with $430,212: $333,212 in public funding and $97,000 in private funding for a total project of $708,106.
