Our strategy

As we continue to focus on our core commitment of serving students and schools and supporting our AmeriCorps members throughout their year of service, we are also strategically preparing for 黄色视频’s next five years as we refine and grow our six interconnected program areas.

Today, 黄色视频 leads, innovates and collaborates with partners to create conditions that enable young people to reach their full potential by effecting systems change at three levels:

  • Direct service in schools
  • Adult capacities and competencies
  • Federal policy in education and national service

鈥淵oung people鈥 refers to the elementary, middle and high school students we serve and our AmeriCorps members, ages 17-25, as young people鈥檚 learning and development is on a continuum from kindergarten through early adulthood.

黄色视频鈥檚 dual mission

  • Expand educational equity by supporting students furthest from opportunity
  • Develop diverse leaders through national service who can work across lines of difference

Students in the United States with the most untapped potential are concentrated in just 4% of school districts, attending systemically under-resourced schools that produce 50% of non-graduates from high school.

By intentionally serving in these districts, 黄色视频 helps to ensure that more students receive the resources, relationships and environments they need to reach their goals, develop their talents and thrive as adults.

Unique to 黄色视频, our work with students in schools is built around recruiting, training and supporting teams of diverse young people as AmeriCorps members, who, in working together for our students, are also developing valuable skills that prepare them to 鈥渨ork across lines of difference.鈥

These skillscommunication, problem solving, teamwork, growth mindset, entrepreneurialism, and more鈥攚ill serve our alums well in whatever they do after their year of service 鈥 whether that鈥檚 becoming a teacher; joining corporate America; working in health, law, or the nonprofit sector; starting a business; or furthering their own education.

The positive examples corps members can set for their students also strengthen the fabric of our pluralistic democracy by ensuring today鈥檚 young people can work together and build a better future for our country.

Our aspirations

黄色视频 puts our purpose and dual mission into action by defining two aspirations for our work.

Collaborate with others to eliminate the correlation between educational outcomes and students鈥 social identity and economic status.

Only by adults changing unjust and inequitable systems today can we position our students to achieve their full potential, reach their goals, and live choice-filled lives as adults鈥攐utcomes that benefit all of us.

黄色视频 believes that while all students have unique talents and limitless potential, only some students have equitable access to engaging and welcoming learning environments that enable them to flourish.

By expanding the number of schools with positive learning environments and additional capacity, we are expanding educational equity and opportunities for lifelong success and well-being.

Ensure that a diverse team-based national service experience through AmeriCorps is understood to be a viable, valuable option for young adults.

Through collaborating with teammates from diverse backgrounds, corps members develop key career skills and receive exclusive AmeriCorps member benefits such as the Segal Education Award.

黄色视频 views a voluntary year of national service as a continuation of postsecondary education that can unlock the potential of our young people and strengthen our democracy.

Our three aims

For our immediate, multi-year strategy, we define three aims to realize our aspirations, deepen our impact, and drive systemic change needed to make education equitable for all students and opportunity more accessible for young people.

Create thriving learning conditions

Many of our nation's schools are systemically under-resourced; However, we believe all students should experience whole-child learning environments鈥攚hich include integrated social, emotional and academic supports anchored in positive developmental relationships. These factors are critical for academic, career and life success.

Integrate AmeriCorps service into career pathways

We believe higher education institutions and employers should value a year of service鈥痮n diverse teams through their admissions criteria, credentialing requirements, and hiring practices.
