The Multilingual Leadership Corps AmeriCorps Program places AmeriCorps members in Maine schools and nonprofit organizations serving 4-12 immigrant and refugee youth (IRY). This program increases academic engagement among IRY through mentoring and implementation of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) best practices. Implementation is achieved through targeted practice of four SEL best practices: 1) Prioritize Youth Engagement; 2) Facilitate Peer-to-Peer Engagement; 3) Coach Youth through Goal Management; and 4) Encourage Member/Staff Engagement. In addition, AmeriCorps members leverage volunteers to engage in implementing SEL practices and mentoring in school/afterschool School Skills Support, Aspirations support, Enrichment, and Community Engagement programs. Portland Community Squash has created a facility and community of adult and junior squash players representing diverse socioeconomic groups and backgrounds in Portland, Maine. Our mission is to sustain this diverse community and to provide academic, wellness, and squash instruction to challenge and empower local youth to achieve academic success, physical wellness, constructive citizenship, and a path to higher education and beyond. With a variety of youth program offerings, we serve an intentionally diverse group of students in grades 4 through 12. In addition to squash coaching and competitive match opportunities, youth participants in the Rally Portland program at Portland Community Squash also receive wellness instruction, leadership and character development, academic tutoring, social-emotional support, college and career readiness, and community service and travel opportunities.
