Through EducationCorps, a new volunteer program operated by
AmeriCorps*VISTA, students can serve as Corps Member Tutors for K-12
students in San Diego. Corps Member Tutors will have the opportunity to
network with AmeriCorps members and affiliate organizations, plus get a
letter of recommendation once service is completed! By the end of service,
volunteers will gain over 100 community service hours and valuable
experience working with youth. Officer positions are available for those
interested in leadership experience.****

EducationCorps currently sends tutors to three elementary schools and two
high schools and is continually establishing additional partnerships. K-12
students that participate come from disadvantaged backgrounds and will have
the opportunity to work directly with EducationCorps members toward
academic achievement and future success.****
