Alpine Achievers Initiative (AAI) works in the beautiful San Luis Valley, in Rural, Southern Colorado. We support the positive development of youth and young adults by lifting them through academic achievement and grounding them in their wilderness heritage. AAI operates with the support of a team of AmeriCorps members in the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado.

AAI AmeriCorps members deliver evidence-based academic interventions in math and literacy and high quality out-of-school-time (OST) programs for economically disadvantaged youth.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Alpine Achievers Initiative (AAI) AmeriCorps Program is designed to promote the academic, physical and social well-being of the youth in the San Luis Valley. The two primary objectives of this program are to provide 1) math and literacy interventions to students performing below proficiency in school and 2) intentional out-of-school and outdoor leadership programming to youth after school, on Fridays, and throughout the summer. AmeriCorps members will be placed at Crestone Charter School, Moffat School, Del Norte School or Mountain Valley School in rural communities throughout the San Luis Valley.
