Impact and Programs

Accomplishments ServeMinnesota made a substantial impact in communities across our state last year. AmeriCorps members served more than 67,000 children, youth, and adults through 16 programs in education, affordable housing, employment, addiction recovery, the environment, and other complex issue areas. The largest program, Minnesota Reading Corps, reached more than 23,000 children in schools, PreK centers, and family child care sites who were in need of literacy skills. The second largest program, Minnesota Math Corps, helped more than 3,000 students in grades 4-8 improve their achievement in math. ServeMinnesota also developed a pilot program to boost the early numeracy skills of preschool students. The program, called Kindergarten Readiness, adds evidence-based math interventions to our existing literacy programming. A preliminary evaluation of Kindergarten Readiness found that children who had both math and literacy programming showed greater learning gains than those with only literacy. Kindergarten Readiness will expand to several more preschool centers this year. ServeMinnesota also expanded a new program focused on helping survivors of substance abuse stay in long-term recovery, called Recovery Corps. This program provided peer support, counseling, and assistance in finding stable housing, employment, and positive community connections to individuals coming out of acute treatment for substance abuse.
Current Goals ServeMinnesota’s programmatic goals for the current fiscal year are: 1) Continue to scale the Kindergarten Readiness program and the Recovery Corps program. 2) Develop programming to extend the current Math Corps program down to grades K-3. 3) Increase the recruitment and retention of diverse AmeriCorps members across all programs.
Community or Constituency Served ServeMinnesota works with AmeriCorps members and community partners to meet critical needs throughout Minnesota. We focus on solving tough problems in educational achievement, economic opportunity, and environmental protection. We work with more than 1,200 sites across the state that are hosting an AmeriCorps member this year. These sites include schools, local nonprofits, and community organizations.
