Welcome to the UIC Center for Literacy and Project MORE!

We’re excited to welcome the University of Illinois at Chicago to the community of organizations using the AmeriCorps Impact Suite!  The University’s AmeriCorps program, Project MORE, helps parents of Head Start students to develop strategies that support their children’s early literacy skills.

Project MORE’s AmeriCorps members are recruited from the community and are placed at Family Start Learning Centers (FAST) and the Chicago Center for Family and Community Leadership (CFCL).  In addition to an AmeriCorps monthly living allowance and an education award, Project MORE members gain valuable training and work experience through the program as GED and ESL tutors, computer instructors, and financial literacy workshop leaders.

Welcome to the community!
