SEE West Monroe
The SEE West Monroe AmeriCorps program operates with the support of the City of West Monroe. Most of our AmeriCorps members are college students, attending one of three local universities, although it is not a requirement. Our program's efforts center on delivering needed service to the residents of West Monroe and the West Ouachita community. These efforts are designed with three elements in mind; Synergy, Education, and Environment. Our Synergy team is the outreach mechanism of our community center and its programs. This team provides community support by delivering financial literacy education and connecting our community residents to other available resources and support services. This team identifies the needs of its residents and facilitates events to fulfill those needs when possible. As they are the first to discover the depths of these needs, this team also plays a vital role in providing necessary information to the program. Information that can and will sculpt future service efforts to help assure that the community centers programs remain relevant and effective for our residents. Our Education team delivers afterschool mentoring and homework assistance to 1st through 5th graders from Riverbend Elementary. These mentors will also serve as stewards of our own lesson plans and enrichment in the areas of math, literacy, STEM, art, and drama. Secondly, by offering an open-door homework lab to any local area 6th grader and up, our members have the opportunity to provide needed assistance to struggling students as they need it. The whole of our membership delivers our Environmental support through periodic beautification events like neighborhood clean-ups, litter walks, and recycling initiatives. Our program also serves to increase the local area’s recycling participation by providing education and awareness of its importance to our residents.

Member Duties : Our members are selected to serve with one of two designed service efforts. Synergy team members will facilitate the primary goal of delivering financial literacy education to local area residents. They will also attend local events and perform some door-to-door outreach to identify the needs of the community. Based on their findings, they will plan and facilitate events to provide support to those identified needs. Those selected to serve on our Education team will serve as mentors for the community center's after school program. The mentors will assist Riverbend's first through third graders with homework. They will also provide enrichment by delivering the designed lesson plans of our program. All members will serve our local environment by participating in periodic beautification events.
