Students at the University of Florida and Santa Fe College have the opportunity to earn a scholarship while they volunteer their time towards mentoring our youth! This is made possible by Florida Campus Compact, a national presidential membership organization that is committed to helping students develop values and skill through participation in community service. They have partnered with AmeriCorps to create the College Access AmeriCorps Program which offers scholarships to college students for mentoring at-risk youth and participating in community service.
Students will receive an educational award amount based on the set number of hours that the student chooses. For 300 hours of service they will receive $1,132 and for 450 hours of service $1,415. They also have the options of serving 600 and 900 hours. There are a few requirements for the program. Volunteers have to mentor a child in grades 6-12 within the Alachua County Public School District for at least one hour every week. Additionally, they will be attending month meeting geared towards increasing their civic knowledge
