Make a Difference
Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed in school. Your gift of time and talent enables STAR House to provide much needed educational support to at-risk children in North Fulton County in Georgia. As a STAR House based AmeriCorps member, you will guide at-risk elementary and middle school students through character development, health + wellness, academic support, literacy and math intervention. Your participation will guide a child to greatness and give them much-needed hope.
STAR House-based AmeriCorps members directly make an impact in a child’s academic journey and personal development. Each member will guide a child in need as they overcome daily challenges both inside and outside of the classroom. You will assist students with homework, school projects, and test preparation to foster good study habits. Additionally, you will mentor students in making good choices by teaching them invaluable life skills.
