Community Schools is a nation-wide strategy that turns a school into a one-stop community hub with the current aim of reducing chronic absenteeism and increasing academic engagement. The Tucson Community Schools Initiative is a collaboration between Higher Ground A Resource Center, La Frontera and Arizona Serve, and places AmeriCorps members at various schools and partner agencies to achieve the vision of a Community School through two approaches - individual student intervention and whole-school support.
The AmeriCorps member will be a key resource in supporting the success of this initiative. This position is an excellent opportunity for someone who is passionate about the impact that Art can make in student's lives, motivated to inspire and support youth, and who enjoys working with a diverse and dynamic team.
