Americorps Honors Urban Educators

Shown are Americorps teachers in the classroom.

Throughout the school year, City Year Jacksonville AmeriCorps members provide daily service in systemically under-resourced schools, providing students in third through ninth grade with academic and soft skill development. The organization provides leadership development for young adults ages 18-15.  Recently City Year Jacksonville celebrated two outstanding AmeriCorps members  for their exceptional service at Duval County Public Schools. Audrey Glitt, working at Andrew Robinson Elementary School, and Akhari Roberts at Jean Ribault Middle School were honored for their “Service to a Greater Cause.”

As part of their year of service, AmeriCorps members receive a bi-weekly stipend, an education award that starts at $6,495 for a full-year member, as well as access to scholarships, professional development training and post-service college and career opportunities. Shown is Ribault Middle School teacher Akhari Roberts or a group of AmeriCorp members working with children in the classroom.
