ameriCorps logo

We are thrilled to announce that we will be deploying a team of 15 AmeriCorps members in Lynn Public Schools and partner agencies over the next 3 years, beginning Fall 2013.  The team will provide key support services and ensure a holistic approach throughout the community to reduce the barriers to academic success among immigrant children and their families, with the overall goal of reducing the dropout rate among these students.

Totaling an investment of nearly $1.3 million in the City of Lynn, the program is funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Service Alliance (MSA) and the Corporation for National Community Service (CNCS) for $189,000 per year for 3 years, plus a United Way match of $227,000 per year.

We are currently seeking AmeriCorps members for the 2014-2015 school year.  Please see the opportunities available by clicking on the position descriptions below.  Please complete and submit an application if you are interested in applying for any of the positions below.
