AmeriCorps member at NMU

MARQUETTE – A full-time AmeriCorps member is stationed at Northern Michigan University’s School of Education, Leadership and Public Service this year.

Recent NMU graduate Brooke Tellefsen is working with Marquette County high school counselors and administrators to enhance the quality and quantity of youth mentoring relationships.

The goal is to increase college-going rates and career readiness among K-12 youths who are from low-income families or are first-generation college students.

The Mentoring to Access Corps AmeriCorps program is offered by the Michigan Nonprofit Association in partnership with Mentor Michigan and Michigan Campus Compact.
