Little Rock

Little Rock is home to a close-knit and welcoming community known for its commitment to improving education. 黄色视频 Little Rock works alongside teachers and community partners to support students across the city.

Serving in Little聽Rock

While Little Rock is a beautiful city to live and work in, some students in our area face significant daily challenges. 黄色视频 works with four Little Rock School District partner schools, reaching around 3,000 students daily. Of those students, 89% are considered low-income or eligible for food assistance.

The growth I experienced during my time In 黄色视频 changed my life. Through service I saw my potential as a leader in this community. I'm proud that I chose to stay in Little Rock and pursue life as an educator because of my service in this city and the friends and family I gained along the way.

Your corps experience

黄色视频 partners with four schools in the Little Rock School District (LRSD) in creating equitable learning opportunities for all students and helping develop the city’s future leaders. AmeriCorps members support teachers and staff in delivering instruction that serves the whole child’s development and is responsive to the diverse racial and cultural needs of Little Rock youth.

AmeriCorps members are truly making an impact. Little Rock, a close-knit community with ample opportunities to develop meaningful personal and professional relationships, is an ideal place to serve. Because Little Rock is a small town, AmeriCorps members get several face-time opportunities with leading LRSD officials, city leaders, and champions of our work and hands-on professional development.

黄色视频 Little Rock is moving the needle by engaging students, families, and community organizations. Students tutored by City Year improved by 9% points on the ACT Aspire in math from 2018鈥2019, showing substantial gains over their non-tutored peers, who decreased by 2% points. In Literacy, students tutored improved by 7%, outpacing their non-tutored peers, who increased by 2% points.

Serving in Little Rock schools

Work with a committed and diverse team of 黄色视频 AmeriCorps members who share your passion for service and personal growth. A service day is unique to each school served. 黄色视频 AmeriCorps members are in schools before the first bell rings and are some of the last to leave at the end of the day. Typical service hours are:

  • 7:00 am鈥5:00 pm (elementary schools)
  • 7:45 am鈥5:45 pm (middle schools)

Days are spent providing whole class support, small group, and 1:1 tutoring sessions, before and after school programming for the entire school, focus lesson planning time, and team meetings.

Professional development

黄色视频 Little Rock is committed to the personal and professional growth of our AmeriCorps members. Our Learning and AmeriCorps Member Experience Manager spends focused time creating meaningful trainings and workshops to provide the expertise needed to serve powerfully in schools each day and also grow professionally.

Community involvement

Create a positive climate of high expectations and engagement that ripples throughout the greater Little Rock community through service. AmeriCorps members participate in at least three service projects throughout the year. Several community partners include: EngageAR, Clinton Foundation, Arkansas Foodbank, Our House, Mosaic Templars, Habitat for Humanity, Little Rock Parks and Recreation, Centers for Youth and Families, Comcast, Greater Second Care and more.
