Extractions: ROPE - Rural Outreach Prevention Education AmeriCorps Program The Need: Sadly, Alaska has the highest rate in the United States for youth who are out of school and not working, the highest teen suicide and violent death rate in the country, and a school dropout rate among Alaska Natives that is double the rate for Caucasians. These three statistics reflect the need for strategies that keep youth connected to positive people and activities in Alaska. The Rural Outreach Prevention and Education (ROPE) program is a regional effort that focuses on providing education and training to youth in Southeast Alaska that increases academic success and resiliency skills. The Rural Outreach Prevention Education (ROPE) program is a host agency program that places AmeriCorps Members with schools and prevention agencies that serve youth in rural and Hub communities (i.e. larger communities that provide services to surrounding villages). The service activities that Members perform include; tutoring (school and after-school), after-school academic and social enrichment activities, family literacy focused on school readiness for pre-schoolers, volunteer recruitment/coordination, prevention education/training, organizing service projects, and summer school and activity clubs. These activities are designed and coordinated to address needs related to academic achievement, youth empowerment, and social enrichment. SAGA has been operating AmeriCorps programs since 1994. This, however, is the first year for the ROPE Program. It represents the efforts of a variety of education and prevention programs working together to address critical needs in Alaska. The ROPE AmeriCorps members will be part of creating a new and innovative program that will provide both worthy challenges and incredible opportunities. We are looking for ten inspired people who like being in on the ground floor of things and enjoy working together through the challenges to build a lasting program that makes a difference in people's lives.
