Jacksonville Education Organizations Receive Competitive AmeriCorps Grants

AmeriCorps announced Wednesday eight Florida education programs will get funding from $5.7 million in competitive grants.

Wendy Spencer is CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service, the agency that administers AmeriCorps Money. She says two of the eight programs are in Jacksonville.

“With your leaders in Jacksonville I’m real impressed with the AmeriCorps programs in Jacksonville,” Spencer said.

The University of North Florida’s Jacksonville Teacher Residency program is one recipient. It’s been around for about a year. The program puts people with math or science degrees into high-need Duval schools, where they learn to teach kids.

Chris White is a Residency Program director. She says her goal has been to diversify the program’s funding stream.

“We’re really proud that going into our second year we’ve already found a very solid source of funding,” White said.

She says the money will be used to pay the volunteers’ stipends and health insurance.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.


If you are as enthusiastic as you sound, I don't know how you would not be accepted.

I know many many people who have volunteered through Americorps just being a high school student, high school graduate or in college.
