Executive Summary

We Connect the Dots proposes to have 56 AmeriCorp members who will comprise of high school students, educators and members of the technology industry in the Community Ambassador Program to create a spirited can-do mindset and leadership abilities for undeserved teenagers in STEAM. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for developing viable relationships with students who will transition to the next year of the Community Ambassador Program. In addition, the AmeriCorp members will leverage 5 volunteers who will be engaged in developing and promoting career and college readiness, school success, positive mindsets, communication skills, leadership abilities, and STEAM knowledge in programs for high school students.

This program will focus on the CNSC focus areas of Education -- improving student academic performance in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and/or Mathematics (STEAM). The CNCS investment of $265,000 will potentially be matched with possible local, state, and county, public, as well as additional private funding, including a secured $ 15,000 in private funding grant.
