AmeriCorps at Partnership 4 Kids

The College and Career Corps Program, a collaboration between Partnership 4 Kids and ServeNebraska, promotes student success through college and career readiness and mentoring.

Six P4K AmeriCorps Service Members work with students in ten OPS middle and high schools as well as various postsecondary institutions. Service Members provide support in areas related to college and career exploration, academic retention, and mentoring to improve graduation rates, attendance, and promote student success.

By the end of the program year, the AmeriCorps Members will be responsible for serving 320 area middle school, high school, and college students as well as leveraging support for 30 volunteers who will be engaged in mentoring these students toward academic and personal success. Partnership 4 Kids consistently exceeds expectations as an AmeriCorps Service Site, achieving incredibly high rates of recruitment and retention.
