Elev8 AmeriCorps Program
The Elev8 Youth Program is part of the Safe Passages School Linked Services Initiative, a comprehensive prevention and intervention strategy for high need K-12 students who score far below or below basic proficiency in Math or English Language Arts (ELA). Participating schools are located in Oakland, Emeryville, and Union City, three high need areas of Alameda County with 80% of the student population qualifying for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program and Academic Performance Index (API) scores of all schools being below the state target. Teams AmeriCorps members work through the school year to provide students with academic support; furthermore, the goals of the program are to increase school connectedness, functional grade level, and to reduce absenteeism. Safe Passages is committed to supporting children, youth, and families with a special emphasis on vulnerable populations within the County of Alameda. In order to achieve the desired results, Elev8 Youth Program places teams of AmeriCorps Members at each of our 10 partner school sites. Each Member identifies and supports a cohort of 10 high need students. A baseline assessment is administered at the beginning of the year to determine the functional grade level students are achieving in Math and English Language Arts. Based on the assessments, AmeriCorps Members develop an individualized learning plan for each student to ensure students move up a minimum of one functional grade level by the end of the school year.
