Superintendent’s/Principal’s Toolkit to Utilizing National Service Resources

Posted by Corporation for National and Community Service on January 22, 2018

Leverage National Service Resources

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and national service programs like AmeriCorps and Senior Corps want to help your district or school – together we can improve academic achievement, student attendance, and on-time graduation rates. With federal funding from CNCS, schools across the country are using this proven source of human capital to help students succeed in school and in life.

  • Over half of CNCS’s budget supports education-related programs.
  • Each year 90,000 AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers provide in-school and after-school support to at-risk youth.
  • Senior Corps volunteers and AmeriCorps members serve in almost 12,000 schools, including one out of every four low-performing schools.
  • Use this new toolkit for superintendents, principals, and other education stakeholders to determine the best ways for you to leverage national service resources in your schools.
