Tucson Community Schools Initiative
The Tucson Community Schools Initiative is a collaborative effort to increase graduation rates and connect students with post-graduation opportunities at eight schools across Tucson. Led by the Tucson Mayor's Office and Arizona Serve, this initiative was launched in April 2015 with the first AmeriCorps members starting in schools in September of 2015.
Community Schools are resource hubs, housed in public schools, that make services and programming provided by partner agencies more accessible to families and students. Local partner agencies and school staff work together to ensure integrated support in academics, health, social services, youth development, and community engagement.
AmeriCorps State, AmeriCorps VISTA, Senior Corps, and National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) members are serving with schools and various nonprofit agencies to implement this service delivery model.
