Campus Link AmeriCorps

Campus Link’s mission is to improve lives by promoting partnerships between campuses and communities and to engage students and other citizens in service that addresses important social concerns. 

The primary focus of the current Campus Link Program is to improve the academic ability and high school preparedness of sixth through eighth graders and address school dropout issues through tutoring and mentoring programs.  Students will be assisted through tutoring in all subject areas (especially English and Math) and participate in activities that will prepare them for the critical transition of middle school to high school.

AmeriCorps members will assist in all these activities, supervised by school faculty and AmeriCorps staff. The goals of this program are to:

  • Increase academic proficiency in state and regular testing
  • Increase promotion to next grade level
  • Increase self-reported readiness for high school and beyond
