What is AmeriCorps?
AmeriCorps is a national service program through the Corporation for National & Community Service that engages more than 75,000 Americans each year in intensive service within one of the following focus areas: disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families.
AmeriCorps in Federal Way
Since 1995, Federal Way Public Schools has had a team of AmeriCorps Members through the Washington Service Corps that serve the community by providing academic tutoring to struggling students. As a team, we typically serve over 5,500 students each year. Members also recruit community volunteers to further increase their efforts to help students.
Serving Students & Growing Leaders.
We provide intentional interventions to positively impact student success.
Our Focus on Foundations AmeriCorps members serve at the elementary level and Equity Corps AmeriCorps members serve at the middle or high school level throughout the district. They also spend days throughout the year partaking in community service projects, trainings, and other personal and professional development activities.
