AmeriCorps LEAP Initiative
Members are matched to early childhood Head Start and other early childhood programs to provide 1:1 social-emotional skill support for children needing a stronger foundation in self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship management and responsible decision making. Members build positive relationships with children and staff for effective service implementation using focused interventions and skill development throughout the classroom day. These activities include interventions that build positive and effective social skills; time to practice recognizing and regulating emotions; using breath and movement to calm minds and bodies, and books to develop curiosity and build interactive confidence with verbal expression within the classroom environment. Members are role models for positive relationships that encourages growth and achievement of children in classroom, and connection with parents/caregivers through Reading Rocks! book distribution to encourage routine reading at home. Routine home reading strengthens child/adult bonding, expands word awareness and word knowledge that gives each child a more equal footing for Kindergarten success. Members coordinate family reading and service events throughout the school year.
