HCV AmeriCorps

Help Improve the Lives of Homewood’s Youth

The Homewood Children’s Village AmeriCorps program is one of a kind. Our Full-Service Community Schools provide holistic support for students to meet all of their developmental needs, beyond academics and traditional hours. AmeriCorps helps make this happen. Full-time AmeriCorps members provide academic support to students ranging from grades kindergarten through 12 grade and connect them with engaging activities after-school. The presence of AmeriCorps Members within our partner schools, out-of-school-time partner programs, and in the community, helps provide positive social reinforcement for students, increasing engagements with learning and, helps connect children and families to appropriate programming and supports throughout the community.
