1. What will your service focus on this year?
During this program year, my service will focus on providing direct support to economically disadvantaged children.

I will be demonstrating useful math development skills that will have a set of specific and measurable indicators.

AmeriCorps is a great way to gain experience in the school system and with volunteer service.
Thank you for your service,LaTonya!
