Healthy Choices AmeriCorps, a project of San Francisco Unified School District’s School Health Programs Office, supports Mentoring For Success and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) at over 40 schools to improve student learning. The primary goal of the project is to enhance student success by increasing attendance and pro-social behaviors on school campuses.
Healthy Choices AmeriCorps seeks energetic San Francisco community members to join us! Help strengthen mentoring programs and support positive school climate. An excellent opportunity to gain invaluable experience in SF public schools, AmeriCorps Members help coordinate programs and activities in partnership with School Social Workers, Nurses, Teachers, Community Members and Partners. Regular training of Healthy Choices AmeriCorps members offers knowledge and skills to provide high quality services to schools at individual, group, and school-wide levels. AmeriCorps Members are paid a monthly stipend for their service engaging students, families, and school community members in positive activities.
