SEE West Monroe
 
 
 
The SEE West Monroe AmeriCorps program operates out of the West Monroe Community Center with the support 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 much 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 support services. This team travels our local communities with the goal of identifying the needs of its residents and facilitating 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 first, second and third 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 4th grader and up, our members have the opportunity to provide much 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.
