AmeriCorps – Partnerships for Student Achievement

The mission of Partnerships for Student Achievement (PSA) is to increase student academic achievement in Washington County Schools; the AmeriCorps Team will improve academic achievement through tutoring, mentoring, extended school day activities, parent involvement programs and volunteer generation. The value of service will be demonstrated to the community at large and a stronger network of involved citizens will be generated.

AmeriCorps members serve full-time (1,720 hours) for 11 months at K-12 schools throughout Washington County. While activities vary from school to school, all placements include:

  • Tutoring and mentoring for low-achieving and at-risk students in math and/or reading
  • Developing, implementing and/or leading extended day activities (recreation, academic enrichment, and tutorial activities)
  • Recruiting and coordinating community and parent volunteers in the school
  • Developing and implementing parent engagement and outreach events
  • Participating in monthly team-based service projects in Washington County
