STOCKTON SERVICE CORPS
A 6-YEAR, PLACE-BASED INVESTMENT IN OUR COMMUNITY
We aim to drastically increase the number of AmeriCorps Fellows serving the Stockton community by 2025 to improve educational outcomes and address social inequities in Stockton. Individuals who participate in the Stockton Service Corps will develop essential workplace skills enabling them to contribute to the region’s economy.
SSC’s vision is to work collaboratively with our host organizations and community partners, connecting them to resources, and facilitating partnerships in order to create a community of collective impact.
We began in October 2019 with a focus on cradle-to-career outcomes for students. In 2020, Stockton was named as 1 of 5 cities to pilot a first-of-its-kind Climate Action service model. Moving into 2021, the number of fellows will grow to nearly 140, continuing to add capacity to community organizations while building career pathways for graduating fellows.
SERVING STOCKTON’S CRITICAL NEEDS
CRADLE TO CAREER
We are working to ensure Stockton’s next generation is prepared from cradle to career. Our three focus areas include Early Childhood Education, K-12 Success, and Post-Secondary Success and Completion.
In California, climate change is a threat to systems and people across the state. Climate change is an existential crisis. Each of us has a role to play. We are working with California Climate Action Corps to mobilize a cohort of fellows who will take meaningful action in Stockton.
