If you’re passionate about helping children in our community and want to make an immediate impact, the IUPUI AmeriCorps program may be for you.
Each year, nearly two dozen IUPUI students work as academic success coaches in the Near West and Martindale Brightwood neighborhoods in Indianapolis. These students commit to offering at least one year of service on either a full-or part-time basis.
If you’re chosen as an academic success coach, you will work with students both during and after school. During the day, you function as a teacher’s aide, working with kids one-on-one and in small groups.
After classes are over, you’ll help run the after school program, helping with homework, tutoring students, and providing a range of fitness and enrichment activities.
