America’s education system is rife with inequity. Students in historically marginalized communities are more likely to attend schools with underperforming teachers, less rigorous academic courses, fewer after-school programs, and lower expectations for academic performance.
The GO AmeriCorps Fellowship program improves education outcomes for students with its intense focus on addressing students’ individual academic and developmental needs. GO Fellows serve in partner schools in select cities in the Northeast. GO Fellows are integral to schools. They provide students daily small-group instruction in math and/or language arts and support students’ social-emotional growth.
