The Americorps members will receive a monthly living allowance and can receive a Segal Americorps Education Award to help pay for education expenses and qualified student loans.

AmeriCorps members will work with high school students on post-graduation plans and future career paths.

They will also help students fill out FASFA applications and some will provide academic coaching for the Texas Success Initiative exam. Members will also serve at Guyon Saunders Resource Center in Amarillo, assisting adult learners working on literacy skills and GED diplomas.
