College Access Corps
 
 
 
The College Access Corps grant is an AmeriCorps grant that provides support to participating college/university campuses to develop, implement, and/or expand K -12 college access programs. The College Access Corps Grant allows selected member campuses to place an AmeriCorps member to help coordinate college access programs in their local communities. AmeriCorps Members will recruit and train college students from their campus to serve as college access coaches to economically disadvantaged youth in schools or community agencies that have a student population that is at least 50% eligible for the federally-funded free/reduced lunch Program. Our program currently have openings at campuses in the following Washington state communities: Ellensburg, Bellingham, Moses Lake, Seattle, Tacoma, Aberdeen, Olympia, Everett, Auburn (near Seattle), Spokane, and Vancouver.
