Our Mission & Vision

 

 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.

Thanks to an investment from the Governor and CaliforniaVolunteers of $12 million over the next 6 years, Stockton is the first city in California to harness a full cradle-to-career AmeriCorps strategy that will help schools and neighborhoods tackle long-standing educational inequities through service fellowships. The Stockton Service Corps (SSC) will enable residents of Stockton to serve students and families in their own community. During their year of service, fellows will earn a stipend and have the opportunity to develop skills and experience in areas such as tutoring, mentoring, project management and more.

Our Goal

To drastically increase the number of AmeriCorps Members serving the Stockton community by 2025, which will improve educational outcomes. Individuals who participate in the project will develop essential workplace skills enabling them to contribute to the region’s economy.
