As part of the Port Angeles School District AmeriCorps program, members will provide focused and strategic intervention in the form of academic tutor and mentor support to at-risk and struggling students in Port Angeles District schools; kindergarten through high school levels.
Sixteen AmeriCorps members will provide one-on-one and small group academic support during the school day in the classroom or dedicated tutoring area. Support focus may be in the areas of reading, writing, math or science. Members will engage with core students to increase their classroom engagement, attendance, and academic skills. After school and summer session support will also be provided to at-risk and struggling students as part of an organized program.
