SERVICE RESPONSIBILITIES IN PRIMARY PROGRAMS: 

Member positions vary widely based on the needs of the site where the position is located.

Academic intervention is the opportunity for students who are not proficient in a subject to receive additional support outside of class time.

Members will have daily contact with students and staff in a number of professional capacities and are encouraged to support outside of the classroom in extracurricular capacities as well. 

Out-of-School Programming

Out-of-school time (OST) is a supervised program that youth attend when school is not in session. Primary responsibilities of AmeriCorps members serving in out-of- school programming include facilitating an array of activities both in and out of doors. Other responsibilities include homework help and light academic support as directed by their site supervisor.
