Executive Summary

The National Learn-2-Earn Partnership, a community engagement initiative of Youth Achievers USA Institute, proposes to have 20 AmeriCorps members who will preserve, through collective service, the legacy of Original Montford Point Marines, recipients of the Congressional Gold Medal in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida in cooperation with local chapters of the Montford Point Marine Association.

At the end of the first program year, NextGen AmeriCorps members will be responsible for sustaining a Montford Point Living Trust as a community reinvestment strategy in partnership with local nonprofit entities. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will engage an additional 400 leveraged volunteers who will strengthen their communities through one partnering nonprofit entity.

This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of Economic Opportunity. The CNCS investment of $219,470 will be matched with $81,759 of the applicant's match, $0 of local, $0 state, $0 additional public funding and $2,000,000 in private funding.
