ArtistCorps to use talent to help high-needs students
ArtistCorps provides an artist-driven service opportunity by placing accomplished artists in public schools and community-based institutions to work with high-needs students. Artists from UNCSA, as well as artists in the Forsyth County, North Carolina, area, work directly with pre-Kindergarten to high school seniors to strengthen community and learning through the use of music, movement, acting and creating works of art.
ArtistCorps is a program of AmeriCorps
The UNCSA ArtistCorps program is an AmeriCorps program and is supported by a grant from the North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service in the Office of Governor Roy Cooper.
AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 members in intensive service annually to serve through nonprofit, faith-based, and community organizations at 21,600 locations across the country. These members help communities tackle pressing problems while mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve. Since 1994, more than 1 million Americans have provided more than 1.4 billion hours of service to their communities and country through AmeriCorps.
AmeriCorps is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that engages more than 5 million Americans in service through its AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, Social Innovation Fund and Volunteer Generation Fund programs, and leads the President's national call to service initiative, United We Serve.
