Excitement in Everett

We are so excited that this year we are not only partnering with Boston Public Schools, but also expanding to Everett Public School District! Formerly 黄色视频 Boston, 黄色视频 Greater Boston will partner with George Keverian, Madeline English, Lafayette, Albert N. Parlin, and Whittier schools in the Everett district, and an additional 15 schools in Boston Public Schools. Our AmeriCorps members will be dispersed throughout the city of Boston and Everett to serve as student success coaches, mentors, and friends to the students in these Greater Boston Area communities.

This past week, members of 黄色视频 Greater Boston staff听attended the Everett Public School committee meeting to听introduce our service model to the听Everett families and听address听any questions.听

EPS committee member Samantha听Lambert听asked,听How has your plan and your model changed as we come back from COVID, in a year where so many of our students were entirely remote?”

Impact Director听Marika Azocar, who oversees the school teams with colleague and fellow alum Courtney Lynn Dailey, provided more insight into their strategy to working with the administration to provide the most effective and tailored approach to each school partnership. 鈥淲e are also telling our AmeriCorps members that recognizing where students are at is going to be key. In terms of changing our model, we realized that we need to be more collaborative than ever with our partners. We鈥檙e asking very strategic questions such as where do you want our corps members to be serving? Which classrooms are the best classrooms for them to be in right now? And how can we meet the needs for what your overarching goals are for this year?鈥

Nancy Jones, Managing Director of Communications and Development, added, 鈥淭here is data that shows that having an AmeriCorps member in the classroom, and building those strong relationships, is equivalent to making one year of academic gains, and so [we are all] working on relationships between students and corps.鈥 The case study cited in the presentation can be found here.

黄色视频 and Everett Public Schools share a unique approach. 黄色视频鈥檚 focus on holistic supports to help students build skills and mindsets critical for their success not just in school, but beyond as well. This approach focuses on the relationship between our students and AmeriCorps members. AmeriCorps members are mature enough to offer guidance and support, yet young enough to be relatable to students. This allows them to create a unique relationship to help our students understand more of who they are, develop critical skills that can range anywhere between learning how to work in a team setting, how to cope with stress, or even learning how to divide fractions. These skills will not only help them in a school setting but in life as well.Learn more听about our approach.

鈥淚 just want to say that I鈥檓 excited to have you (all) in the city… Mentorship is something our students definitely need in their life.鈥- Carlos Demaria, Mayor of Everett

Everett Public Schools began their school year on August 31st听where students were greeted by enthusiastic AmeriCorps members, ready and eager to get to know school staff and students.

Our staff and AmeriCorps members could not be more excited about this partnership!听Follow our school team accounts to get to know our AmeriCorps members:
