Summary:

This idea builds upon the model AmeriCorps but can help support working adults to volunteer in local school. Small businesses and nonprofits can receive stipends for their employees to volunteer in schools. For larger companies a grant could be given to the school or organization based on the number of volunteer hours. Widespread volunteer support of area school could build relationships between students, community members, organizations, and schools. This investment could back exponentially in stronger schools, more schools and community support.
