AmeriCorps GEORGIASupporting Roswell Youth

Through grants awarded by AmeriCorps to the City of Roswell, the City and two of its nonprofit partners—Ed Isakson/Alpharetta YMCA and STAR House Foundation—are providing enhanced after-school programming at select Roswell elementary schools.

In 2017, the City received a $74,000 grant to begin the planning phase of the project. A 2018 grant for up to $89,709 will be used by the City and these partners to continue this work by supporting after-school programming at four area schools with the goal of increasing elementary literacy and providing additional STEM and health and wellness education.

The City of Roswell is contributing up to an additional $39,748 in monetary and in-kind funding to facilitate the project.

Ready to Help? Become An AmeriCorps Member

To accomplish the goals of this project, the City of Roswell is recruiting 20 AmeriCorps members to implement the enhancements—specifically, working with teachers to provide additional instruction and homework support to participating students. These AmeriCorps members will also engage participants’ parents through meetings and information sessions, and the community through service opportunities on nationally recognized days of service.

Individuals interested in becoming AmeriCorps members to help students in these after-school programs are invited to visit AmeriCorps for more information.
