AIMS HIGH AmeriCorps
The LearningWorks AIMS HIGH program places teams of dedicated AmeriCorps members in elementary schools in Southern Maine to increase student academic achievement and social and emotional learning through tutoring, mentoring and extended learning interventions, both in and outside of the classroom.
Why We Do It
We know that by providing targeted academic support to students who most need it, we can help students and schools achieve their full potential. AIMS HIGH members come from and reflect the diversity of the communities that they serve in, and are invested in creating a lasting impact on the lives of each student by engaging their entire community in the learning process
As an AmeriCorps member you will gain hands-on experience working with students in local schools, grow your leadership abilities, and learn essential professional skills for your career. While serving as an AmeriCorps member you will apply your energy and idealism to develop meaningful relationships and student success. AIMS HIGH AmeriCorps members receive professional development training to serve in schools and communities, including academic instruction, classroom management, and community building. Upon completion of service, AmeriCorps members are eligible to receive an education award that can be used towards tuition, future educational opportunities or to pay qualified student loan debt.
The AIMS HIGH Program is sponsored by the Maine Commission for Community Service (MCCS). MCCS builds capacity and sustainability in Maine’s volunteer and service communities. Funding for the LearningWorks AIMS HIGH AmeriCorps program is provided by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).
