Executive Summary

WINGS for kids proposes to have 92 AmeriCorps members who will implement the WINGS Social and Emotional Learning Program in Charleston County, South Carolina; Mecklenburg County, North Carolina; and Fulton County, Georgia. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for improving academic engagement (behaviors) by increasing executive function and self-regulation skills and improving student attendance in low-income students. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 100 volunteers who will be engaged in providing one on one tutoring support.

This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of education. The CNCS investment of $499,960 will be matched with $479,298, $444,298 in public funding and $35,000 in private funding.
