“Many people know about the reading-achievement gap between underrepresented students and the majority. Yet, a very few number of people actually do anything about it. Instead of lamenting the below-grade reading level of students in low-income communities, AmeriCorps allowed me to do something about it.” – Xigrid, AmeriCorps tutor

AmeriCorps is a national service program that provides opportunities for individuals to serve their country and community through local non-profit agencies. Each year participants of AmeriCorps, called Members, join a local program and provide specific, intensive community services — such as mentoring students through the Foundation’s Graduation Pathways program.
