Grenada School District AmeriCorps Program
The AmeriCorps' national motto is "We Get Things Done" and our program does just that! Twenty-nine AmeriCorps members will tutor 1,015 K-8 students in reading and math within the Grenada Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary, and Middle Schools, participate in local and national days of service in the Grenada community, and reinforce tutoring through reading initiatives at the local library. At the end of our program, our goal is to have at least 85% of the 1,015 K-8 students receiving AmeriCorps tutoring have at least a 15% gain in academic achievement as measured by pre and post test scores. Members will have experienced a meaningful year of service and training activities that have a positive impact on the community needs and encourage community members to participate in community service. The member will have recurring access to vulnerable populations. The member is required to wear the AmeriCorps Logo daily whilst in service.
