*MTCC AmeriCorps Team Member--EmpowerMT
EmpowerMT serves the state of Montana by empowering youth leaders who work to end mistreatment, correct systemic inequalities and strengthen communities across the state. EmpowerMT envisions a Montana where each person is respected, where differences are understood, where youth, institutions, and communities share a commitment to correct injustices, and where all people have the opportunity to thrive without the risk of violence or oppression. The 2015 YRBS Survey found 26% of Montana high school students had been bullied at school in the past 12 months, well above the national average. That number increased to 29% for Native American students in urban schools and 40% for students with disabilities. 6% of all high school students reported they did not go to school at least one or more day in the last 30 days because they felt unsafe. Feeling valued, respected, and safe at school is essential to academic success. The lack of acceptance and frequency of bullying and violence experienced at school correlates directly to the academic success of many student sub-groups. The EmpowerMT/Big Sky High School-based AmeriCorps Team will consist of a MTCC AmeriCorps Leader and 4 college student Team Members. The Team Members will assist the Team Leader in facilitating EmpowerMT programming to develop leaders at Big Sky High School and its feeder schools. Member duties reflect EmpowerMT and Big Sky High School’s shared value that all people will be treated with respect and dignity and approached with recognition of their individual importance. Each MTCC AmeriCorps Team Member will commit to serving a 300 hour term of service (approximately 10-20 hours/week). Successful college student candidates will serve as College Positive role models and be passionate about creating equitable opportunities and addressing barriers for all youth to attend college.
