America’s education system is rife with inequity. Students in low-income communities are more likely to attend schools with:
Less rigorous academic courses
Fewer after-school programs
Lower expectations for their academic performance
The GO Fellows program improves education outcomes for students with its intense focus on individualized instruction and addressing students’ developmental needs.
Tutoring delivered in the context of a supportive relationship between student and GO AmeriCorps member will result in a dramatic increase in student math and ELA achievement.
When GO students meet or exceed their annual growth targets as set by a nationally normed assessment, students get back on track, are more likely to graduate from high school, and are better prepared for college and career success.
