Limited Capacity seats available

Join us for a panel discussion of how AmeriCorps programs can (and do) partner with ELO programs for mutually beneficial programming during school breaks. Many AmeriCorps members in Washington State are placed in schools serving as tutors and mentors. Full-time service in AmeriCorps is 1,700 hours which is a challenge to fulfill due to school breaks. At the same time the school breaks place a burden on low-income families who struggle to find, and afford, childcare during the breaks. Learn how AmeriCorps members can meet their service hour commitment by providing additional academic, social, and emotional supports to children and youth served by ELO programs during these times. Hear about innovative partnership possibilities with the Washington Service Corps and Washington Reading Corps, and the United Way of King County’s VISTA Summer Associate Summer Meal program. Time will be allotted for questions and discussion.
