The Stockton Service Corps was created through funding made available through Governor Newsom’s 2019-2020 Budget which made unprecedented levels of investment in California Volunteers and the State’s AmeriCorps program. Stockton Service Corps programs will receive up to $12M in grants from California Volunteers over a period of six years. Stockton Service Corps is a first-of-its-kind collective impact AmeriCorps initiative in the San Joaquin Valley. SSC launched in October of 2019, placing 100 AmeriCorps fellows in Stockton, with a focus on cradle-to-career outcomes for students. Fellows serve students through college persistence coaching, academic tutoring, and mentorship with a focus on some of our most vulnerable students and communities.
In 2020, Stockton was named as 1 of 5 cities to pilot a first-of-its-kind Climate Action service model. In partnership with Stockton Service Corps, California Volunteers will place fellows to build capacity of climate focused organizations across Stockton. With its new expansion into climate action work, SSC expands on its commitment to address Stockton’s most critical needs. 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.
