TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Indiana State University has received more than $175,000 to continue the school's AmeriCorps Program.
The program provides tutoring and mentoring to area teenagers and elementary school students.
Program leaders teach CPR, provide disaster education workshops, and child care resources. The service has more than 50 full and part-time members in five counties in West Central Indiana.
"For the students and the university it still means that we have a strong connection with our community partners, for the students this gives them great internship opportunities and service learning opportunities as well, they get to go out in the community they get to work with non-profits," said Jennifer Christian, AmeriCorps program director.
This is the 10th year the corps has received this grant.
