We believe education has the power to help every child reach his or her potential. However, in high-poverty communities there are external factors and obstacles students are faced with every day that can interfere with their ability to get to school ready to learn. Our AmeriCorps members serve students in 26 Chicago Public Schools and we continuously track and measure our impact. Recently, we deployed 206 highly skilled AmeriCorps members to serve in 24 schools in the south and west sides of Chicago. Together, this team transforms the future for nearly 14,600 students.
