 AmeriCorps members actively engage with and serve in the greater Jackson community, improving the lives of children and adults through the development of STEM literacy. AmeriCorps members build the organizational capacity of Teton Science Schools and other local nonprofits and government agencies to increase the quality and accessibility of out-of-school program offerings in the community through needs assessments and project development. AmeriCorps members exit the program as engaged community members, leaders and educators.  

The service term is split between TSS field education and project work with a partner organization local to Jackson, Wyoming. With TSS field education, the service term will progress through various stages of training, observation, co-teaching, planning and implementing place-based education programs for visiting students. The other part of the term is a project with a local non-profit. The partner project provides an opportunity to serve with a local organization to help strengthen the Jackson community and meet the community’s needs. These projects range from program and curriculum development to analysis and research to social media content creation, and more.
