Family and Community Engagement (FACE) oversees two AmeriCorps programs that offer opportunities to community members, educators, students and parents to engage their community and serve others, while earning an education award to further their own academic goals.
AmeriCorps members align their passions and skills with the needs of schools and communities by developing service projects that target academic achievement, in addition to engaging parents to volunteer more in the classroom and participate in school activities.
FACE Education Corps
Through targeted case management, full-time AmeriCorps members make direct contact with parents/guardians of students with poor attendance by conducting daily attendance check-ins. Members build strong relationships with students and families, allowing greater ability to assess needs and provide targeted resource information.
AmeriCorps members use an established, research-based multi-generation approach to directly engage both students AND family members, to:
- Increase family confidence in engaging the school community
- Enable student access to personal and professional development
- Increase confidence of school personnel to involve the community in decision-making processes
By supporting student success members strive to ensure that every student reaches his or her full potential as an educated and productive citizen.
