Executive Summary

The Civic Service Institute at Northern Arizona University (CSI@NAU) proposes to have 65 AmeriCorps members who will present four modules of post-secondary education and career planning support to economically disadvantaged high school seniors and high school seniors with special and exceptional needs in Coconino, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo, Pima, Pinal, and Yavapai counties. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for providing one-on-one post-secondary preparedness support to 5,000 students, with 2,000 of those students entering post-secondary educational institutions within one year of the intervention. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 300 leveraged volunteers, who will be engaged in assisting high school seniors and their families in completing the Federal Assistance for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) application. This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of education. The CNCS investment of $673,306 will be matched with $620,906, $114,597 in public funding and $506,309 in private funding.
