Currently recruiting for 2018-2019 service year.
Girls Inc. is seeking an AmeriCorps VISTA to work within our after school mentoring and educational enrichment programs. The AmeriCorps member would have the opportunity to be fully trained on all five of our research based curricula that they would then share with our participants.
Here at Girls Inc, we administer center based and outreach setting after school programs to over 350 girls per week. We have 12 outreach sites throughout Knox and Anderson Counties as well as a center based site that runs 5 days a week. Your member would have the opportunity to work with girls who are economically disadvantaged in fields such as science, mathematics, nutrition, life skills development and more.
The goal of our programs is to open opportunities for our participating girls to aid in self confidence building, provide academic support, life skills development and a positive mentoring relationship. Our programs work directly with schools and community advocates to ensure that we are meeting the highest needs of the participating girls. This is an invaluable service and truly provides an impact for our participants. We are ensuring girls are meeting academic standards, have access to basic needs and providing opportunities to advance their personal and educational goals as they grow
