Land of Lincoln AmeriCorps/ Southern Seven AmeriCorps

Program Description:

Southern Seven AmeriCorps is an expansion of Land of Lincoln AmeriCorps. Land of Lincoln AmeriCorps utilized the talents of Illinois college students to provide tutoring and mentoring services to Illinois elementary and middle school students. Land of Lincoln AmeriCorps is a collaboration of eight community colleges and one State University seeking to better link Illinois college students with their communities in an effort to assist children and youth in achieving their fullest academic and social potentials. The program focuses on literacy issues for targeted emerging learners and homework completion and attitude toward participation for middle school, teacher-referred students in thirty-two Pre-K through 8th grade schools. Southern Seven AmeriCorps provides full-time volunteers for ten community and faith-based organizations in the seven most southern counties in Illinois. Members commit to one full year serving at such places as battered women's centers, homeless shelters, computer and family literacy labs, mentoring centers, and environmental and resource conservation education centers.
