Communities In Schools of the Gulf South
The Communities In Schools of Greater New Orleans AmeriCorps program will focus on a strategic plan to provide support to help students succeed in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Ten reduced halftime and ten quarter time AmeriCorps members will increase the number of New Orleans students in Kindergarten through 12th grade who demonstrate improved behavior and attitude to achieve the goal of on-time promotion or graduation. Guided by the evidence-based Communities In Schools model for integrated student services, corps members will work inside New Orleans public schools. During the 6 or 10 month service year, corps members will engage in a variety of activities including mentoring, one on one counseling, providing psycho social assessments, group counseling, implementing a social skills group curriculum and resource and referral acquisition to achieve the desired result.

Member Duties : AmeriCorps Members are required to be currently attending graduate school for counseling or social work and must be in the practicum or internship semester. AmeriCorps members will use the evidence based BASC-2 Behavioral and Emotional Screening (BESS) to assess the mental and behavioral health needs of 300 students in their assigned school. Members will implement one of two evidence based strategies depending on the results of the BASC-2 assessment. Students that score high in developmental social disorders and low in executive functioning will implement social skills groups. Social skills groups will be six students to eight students in a six session program. Members will be provided an evidence-based program designed specifically for implementation in schools. Students that score high in negative emotionality and low in resiliency, will receive one-on-one mentoring or small group counseling. Members will work with 12-15 students each for 24 session of 60min over a six month period.
