The AmeriCorps Education Fellow Team Members commit to 11 months of service, providing academic supports in literacy or math to economically disadvantaged students from Providence, Pawtucket and Central Falls, Rhode Island. Members will be trained in various school curriculum that aligns to the needs of the students. AmeriCorps members will work with around 30 students throughout the year both during school and in after school skills groups. Specifically, Members will meet with small groups of students and target their academic intervention to support the students' continued growth in either math or literacy. Members are expected to establish relationships with school staff, parents, and students in an effort to provide a more thorough support system for students.
