What We Do

The LearningWorks Aim High AmeriCorps program places teams of dedicated AmeriCorps members in elementary schools in Portland and Westbrook, Maine to support student academic achievement and social and emotional learning through tutoring, mentoring and extended learning interventions, both in and outside of the classroom.  

Why We Do It

We know that by providing targeted academic support to students who most need it, we can help students and schools achieve their full potential. Aim High members come from and reflect the diversity of the communities that they serve in, and are invested in creating a lasting impact on the lives of each student by engaging their entire community in the learning process

Why Serve?

As an AmeriCorps member you will gain hands-on experience working with students in local schools, grow your leadership abilities, and learn essential professional skills for your career. While serving as an AmeriCorps member you will apply your energy and idealism to develop meaningful relationships and student success. Aim High AmeriCorps members receive professional development training to serve in schools and communities, including academic instruction, classroom management, and community building. Upon completion of service, AmeriCorps members are eligible to receive an education award that can be used towards tuition, future educational opportunities or to pay qualified student loan debt.
