AmeriCorps (pronounced "Ame-ri-core") is a national service program designed to connect Americans in intense service to meet critical community needs in education, environment, public safety, disaster preparedness and other human needs. The Department of Campus Life AmeriCorps members will provide tutorial and mentor services to high school students at Forest Park, Jonesboro, Morrow, and Mt. Zion high schools; facilitate personal development sessions with the high school students and provide opportunities for the students to participate in community volunteer projects.
