*Goodwill*Monadnock Regional School District ACES-Swanzey NH
Great Strides places members in rural Schools in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont in order to increase student engagement through targeted mentoring support. Stipended members will implement the Check & Connect mentoring program (a research-based intervention for academically disengaged K-12 students) in rural nonprofits and schools, while Education Award Only Members will implement Connect2Complete (a pilot program utilizing peer mentoring and service-learning) to engage low-income college students. AmeriCorps members will be responsible for increasing student academic engagement, ultimately increasing economic success. In addition, AmeriCorps members will leverage volunteers to engage in Check & Connect and Connect2Complete mentoring and in-school/afterschool service-learning, academic support, parental engagement, and enrichment interventions. ACES 93… fun for kids and peace of mind for parents! All Children Educated Safely in SAU #93 (ACES 93) prides itself on providing out-of-school time services for students and their families in the Monadnock Regional School District’s five elementary and one regional middle school. ACES 93 programming takes place before and after school, as well as during school vacations, and is designed to broaden participants’ experiences, improving their academic, social, emotional, and physical well being. Highest priorities include creating a safe and engaging environment for children and their families. ACES 93 strives to form partnerships with each school, community, and family in order to provide the most effective academic enrichment, physical fitness, nutritional and life-skill programs for its participants. Above all, the program challenges children to learn while having fun! The member will be working at the ACES #93 - Monadnock Regional Middle School Site.
