YouthServe AmeriCorps is a school-based community project serving the county of Humboldt in Northern California. Members work with middle and high school aged students who are enrolled in Alternative Education Schools (Community, Continuation, or Court Schools) or who are on a school behavioral contract. Students are typically enrolled in these Alternative Education Schools because they have fallen behind in their academic credits. Other reasons students may be attending are due to having extensive absences, behavioral issues, and/or non-traditional ways of learning.
YouthServe AmeriCorps Members support and encourage students to reflect on their character, skills, and behaviors in order to make positive life choices that will assist them in making the transition into adulthood.
