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 is a full cradle-to-career AmeriCorps strategy that will help schools and neighborhoods tackle long-standing educational inequities through service fellowships. We will enable residents of Stockton to serve students and families in their own community. During their year of service, fellows will provide additional reading and writing tutoring, promote restorative justice and socio-emotional wellness, and they will mentor young people, particularly first generation students, as they navigate high school and transition to and through college.
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.
