Teacher Leader Notes for Reiche Families and Community Members

Reiche is partnering with Americorps and Learning Works.
We are seeking students, parents, and grandparents interested in working with Americorps.

Americorps ME "Aim High"In addition to supporting schools, students, and the local community, the benefits of AmeriCorps service include professional development, attending conferences and trainings, making lasting friendships, and earning an education award that can be used towards tuition or student loan debt. Individuals who are 55 or older when they start service can pass on that award to their children or grandchildren.  The different service commitment levels also mean there are options for serving from just 5 hours a week, up to full time. Details are in the link below.
