AmeriCorps mission statement when it comes to education:

"At AmeriCorps, we believe that all students can succeed when given the chance and we have a simple strategy: Create the conditions that make children and youth want to learn, and give them the opportunity to achieve.

We do this by serving in schools and building capacity in communities across America. Our AmeriCorps members improve students' academic achievement by increasing their engagement and providing one-on-one time with a concerned, involved adult.

Simply put, students do better in school when school does better by them. This is the only way our students can discover the skills they need to master and find the love of learning they need to thrive in college and beyond."
