The mission of our three signature programs (University Service-Learning, America Reads, and AmeriCorps) is to:

  • Immerse ASU students in the community and provide them with real-world experiences that build professional skills and cultivate socially responsible citizens
  • Serve as a resource for community agencies, faculty, K-12 teachers, and families
  • Partner local organizations and schools with ASU students and staff to serve our community

University Service-Learning

ASU students enrolled in 3-credit USL courses complete coursework relevant to the 70-100 required service hours performed at an approved Community Partner site. USL also offers professional development service-learning workshops for K-12 teachers. Other service-learning tools, resources, and links are provided for ASU faculty and community members.

America Reads

ASU students are matched with K-8th grade children living in low income areas and provide mentoring and academic tutoring tailored to the child’s needs. Programming is supported by partnerships with local schools and community centers. Tutors awarded Federal Work-Study earn $9/hour.

Initiated by President Clinton in 1993, AmeriCorps is often referred to as the "domestic Peace Corps." AmeriCorps offers opportunities for adults of all ages and backgrounds to serve their communities. AmeriCorps rewards participants contributing significant amounts of service with Education Awards to pursue their educational goals.
