AmeriCorps Benefits the Community (ABC)

Program Description:

The mission of ABC AmeriCorps is to work with children, youth, and families in education programs and community-based agencies to increase academic and life skills. The Program has a three-prong effort to increase the quality of live in northwest Illinois: 1) service in the schools and agencies, 2) community service projects, and 3) an awareness of the needs of the community to encourage the members to be life-long volunteers as alumni of ABC AmeriCorps. AmeriCorps members tutor teacher-identified students to increase the skills needed for academic improvement. The sites for this tutoring are public and parochial schools, and after-school programs. AmeriCorps members serve in community-based agencies to provide the opportunity for expansion of services. They recruit and train volunteers for community service activities. Through a partnership with the American Red Cross, members can become trained to be disaster volunteers. AmeriCorps members will increase their belief over the term of service that they can participate in and improve civic life.
