White House Announces New National Partnership for Student Success

At the White House event with Domestic Policy Council Director Susan Rice, Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona and AmeriCorps CEO Michael Smith, the Biden-Harris Administration launched a new National Partnership for Student Success (NPSS). The NPSS is a coordinated, research-based, locally-driven, all-in effort to help all students recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NPSS will be led by the U.S. Department of Education, AmeriCorps, and a diverse coalition of education and national service organizations who will recruit, screen, train, support, and engage additional AmeriCorps members and volunteers serving as academic tutors, high quality mentors, student success coaches, wraparound integrated student support coordinators, and post-secondary transition coaches for students in Pre-K through high school.

The launch of the NPSS follows President Biden’s call for more tutors and mentors in the 2022 State of Union Address and this new public-private partnership will lift up and build upon the work of AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps Seniors.
