About AmeriCorps and the Lynn AmeriCorps Project:
AmeriCorps is a national community service program that gives people an opportunity to apply their skills and ideals towards helping others and meeting critical needs in the community. The Lynn AmeriCorps Program will place 15 AmeriCorps members in schools and non-profit organizations throughout Lynn, MA, to help implement programs designed to reduce the school dropout rate among immigrant students through tutoring, mentoring and family support services. Members will complete at least one year of service, from September 2014 to August 2015. Collectively, the work of the Corps members will ensure a holistic approach throughout the community to reduce the barriers to academic success among immigrant youth and their families. Corps members will be supervised by both their host organization and the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley Program Manager.
United Way of Massachusetts Bay and MerrimackValley is advancing the common good in our region by providing help today in ways that strengthen tomorrow. Our work ensures that children are ready to learn when they enter school, stay engaged in learning and graduate able to compete, and are nurtured by families that have the financial stability to support both their basic needs and future success. No other single organization has the scope, expertise and influence, to bring together hundreds of human services agencies, government, businesses, private foundations and dedicated volunteers around a common vision of creating maximum impact and achieving long-lasting results.
