About Program

FWPS AmeriCorps members make a difference in the lives of young people by serving in AVID elective classrooms, core-subject classrooms (Math, Science, English, & History), and after-school programming. AVID is a college and career readiness system that equips scholars with the skills to succeed. AVID is the primary focus of our program. AmeriCorps members facilitate small study groups called tutorials in the elective. Members will guide a group of seven students through a 10-step process to support their academic achievement, learning, and much more. Core-subject classroom support takes our provided services up a notch. By being in the classroom supporting the learning environment, members are able to experience one-on-one or small-group tutoring. Each member serves in a team dynamic as they are assigned to one middle school or high school location.

My experience

Joining AmeriCorps was the best decision I could have made because it lead me to the career path I am in today. I am a school counselor for the Federal way school district. My AmeriCorps experience was fun, beneficial and humbling. I was able to work with students build strong relationships but also learn key life skills. I was able to be a trusted adults that the scholars would go to if issue arise. I was able to advocate for them and show them what it looks like for someone to advocate for them. I was able to give back to my community that I grew up in.

FWPS AmeriCorps

The AmeriCorps program and the students I worked with over the year helped form who I am as an educator today. Not only was I able to connect with the community, but I was also able to learn about what it meant to work in a classroom and support a variety of students. The AmeriCorps program also supported me in learning more about social justice and the importance of community. All of this being said, without the AmeriCorps program, I do not think I would be able to be the same educator I am today as it showed me the importance of paras and extra folks from the community to uplift our students and get them to where they need to be.
