AmeriCorps Great Futures
On August 20th 2018, Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia officially launched our AmeriCorps Great Futures program! Nationwide, AmeriCorps engages more than 75,000 members in intensive service annually to serve through nonprofit, faith-based, and community organizations at 21,000 locations across the country. These members help communities tackle pressing problems while mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve. Since 1994, more than 980,000 Americans have provided more than 1.3 billion hours of service to their communities and country through AmeriCorps.
Thanks to a three-year grant from the Corporation for National and Community service, 9 full-time and 27 part-time AmeriCorps members will serve in our Clubs, providing Literacy Enrichment, STEM, and High Yield Learning programs to over 700 youth. Throughout the course of the year, each AmeriCorps Team leader will dedicate 1,700 hours to our Clubs, and each Learning Coordinator will dedicate 900 hours. Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia’s AmeriCorps Great Futures program is designed to improve academic achievement and attitudes towards learning of Club members in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.
