Eastern Carver County School District

May 14, 2017

I wanted to reach out and pass along a job opportunity with the Eastern Carver County School District that I believe might be of interest to the students graduating from your program this spring. We are looking for bright, energetic individuals with a passion for working with at-risk youth and we believe graduates of your program could be an excellent fit!

The AmeriCorps Promise Fellows role tackles issues of educational equity by providing resources to increase high school graduation rates at schools across Minnesota. The Fellows serve at least 30 youth in grades 6-12, depending on school placement, in communities that have the highest annual dropout rates and middle schools that feed into those high schools. Each Promise Fellow works with a site supervisor, data coach, and a youth success team comprised of supervisors, school social workers, and other school personnel to analyze data, make referrals, identify youth who need support, and connect the youth to resources and programs that will engage them in school and learning. This role ensures that youth receive access to caring adults, service and leadership opportunities, and high quality in and out of school support. The goal of the Fellow’s service is to build relationships with youth and support them to engage in school.
