ArtistCorps to use talent to help high-needs students
ArtistCorps will provide 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, NC, area, will 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 made possible through a FY2015 State Formula AmeriCorps grant supported by the North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community in the Office of Governor Pat McCrory.
AmeriCorps engages more than 75,000 members in intensive service annually to serve through nonprofit, faith-based, and community organizations at 25,000 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 900,000 Americans have provided more than 1.2 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.
