*Goodwill*Monadnock Regional School District ACES-Swanzey NH
Goodwill places AmeriCorps members in schools and nonprofits to increase student engagement through targeted mentoring of students that face significant challenges and need additional interventions to succeed in school and life. Members utilize the Check and Connect mentoring model supporting students through: 1) Weekly one-on-one check-ins with 15-25 students. 2) Weekly Monitoring Forms, gathering behavioral and school data. 3) Connecting students to needed interventions. 4) Connecting with families. Member support is provided through mentoring, academic support, service learning, additional interventions, and/or planning for or recruiting volunteers to support these activities. Check and Connect is a research proven model created by the University of Minnesota, proven to increase academic engagement, decrease absences and tardiness, and improve persistence in students who are disengaged or at risk of dropout. Additional information can be found at 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 District’s five elementary and one regional middle school.
