    Our AmeriCorps Program

    Since 1995, as a State and National program, Federal Way Public Schools AmeriCorps has proudly served the K-12 scholar population of our district. Members of the program come from various origins, both local and national, to provide academic support and coaching for student scholars. As a program, our direct focus is education, but occasionally we take the service experience beyond the school walls and perform community service projects. Members of the program are provided professional development and gain quality work experience during the 10.5 month service term. From retirees to entry level candidates, we pride ourselves on the diversity of our team.

     

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

    Vision 

    Serving Students & Growing Leaders

    Mission 

    We provide intentional interventions to positively impact student success. 

     

    Service Experience    

    The FWPS AmeriCorps program consists of one project entitled Equity Corps. Members of the program primarily support student scholars enrolled in AVID college readiness classrooms by facilitating small Socratic study groups called tutorials. Members also serve in Core subject classrooms and finish up the day by hosting an after school homework club. Each member is assigned to one of our 6 middle schools or 4 high schools.

    We take our service to the Federal Way community beyond the walls of the classroom. Periodically members conduct community service projects that are designed to address various environmental and humanitarian needs of Federal Way. 

     

    Members receive training and development to reinforce best practices in the field of education in an inclusive environment designed to foster the development of leadership skills.
