Project RISE AmeriCorps
What is AmeriCorps? Often called the domestic Peace Corps, AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs focused on improving lives and fostering civic engagement.
Project RISE (Refugee and Immigrant Success through Education) is New American Pathways’ AmeriCorps program developed in partnership with Fugees Family to serve new Americans in Georgia.We host 24 AmeriCorps members in full-time service for an 11-month service cycle each year beginning in September.
At New AP, most members offer direct services to refugees through their assigned department, such as resettlement or career services, during the day and then serve refugee youth in our afterschool programs in the afternoon. All Fugees members are dedicated to Fugees Academy and soccer programming.
It is only through AmeriCorps that we are able to offer the full continuum of direct services that span from arrival through citizenship, and even beyond through civic engagement.
