AmeriCorps Builds Lives through Education (ABLE) members serve K-12 students in the City of Buffalo by tutoring and providing academic assistance. ABLE members commit to one year of full-time service as AmeriCorps members at a partner site. Many ABLE members come to the program as certified teachers, but it is not a requirement for service. In addition to serving at a host site, ABLE members participate in continuous professional development including monthly training, site visits with ABLE staff, reading and discussion series, and other opportunities provided through ABLE.
Health Sciences has enjoyed a successful partnership with the ABLE program since 2011. ABLE members play an integral role in the Health Sciences' family and provide classroom teachers with invaluable assistance with classroom activities, special projects, and academic intervention services. Equally as important, ABLE members provide students with an understanding of the importance of service to one's community.
