In 2013, the City of Orlando received a multi-year grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) via Volunteer Florida, to fund the Orlando Partnership for School Success (O-PASS). The program recruits and deploys 32 full time AmeriCorps members to approximately 8 middle school and City after school sites, where they offer tutoring and mentoring services to middle school aged children.
The O-PASS grant helps fund administrative positions, including that of Amalia Herrera, Administrative Assistant - Contract. By approving the attached contract, the City will ensure administrative/clerical support to coordinate the O-PASS grant project for the period August 10, 2015 through July 31, 2017. In her capacity as Administrative Assistant, Ms. Herrera will assist in the collection and preparation of program data for performance reports; AmeriCorps members’ professional development and training plans; and monthly data reports and formative / summative evaluations, while also providing clerical support to Project Coordinator.
