The mission of Springfield College is to educate students in spirit, mind, and body for leadership in service to others. Members of Springfield College AmeriCorps programs live and share this mission, engaging in service that meets the critical educational needs of Springfield youth.
Through the Massachusetts Reading Corps and School Turnaround Initiative programs, AmeriCorps members serve in Springfield schools and early education centers (grades PreK through 12), where they facilitate interventions targeting risk factors for dropping out of school, including poor early literacy skills, low attendance, behavioral/disciplinary issues, and course failure in English and math.
AmeriCorps members can serve part-time, completing 900 hours as a Student Support Specialist, Literacy Tutor, or LACES Academic Coach, or full-time, completing 1,700 hours as a Literacy Tutor. Members are selected and placed based on previous experience, academic program, and applicable skills. The program also provides extensive training and support around evidenced-based practices and interventions in education and literacy, ensuring that members have a meaningful service experience that positively impacts the academic success of children in Springfield.
