The Trekkers proposes to have 2 AmeriCorps members who will act as role models for youth in Knox County, Maine. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for doubling the number of contact hours each Trekkers student spends with a trained, caring adult role model. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage an additional 24 volunteers who will be engaged in building caring relationships with students. This program will concentrate on the CNCS focus area of Education. The CNCS investment of $29,864 will be matched with $33,901, $0 in public funding and $33,901 in private funding.
