The Building Kids Up Program is an AmeriCorps program placing eight AmeriCorps Members (ACMs) in agencies throughout San Mateo County to implement learning activities focused on school readiness and the
county that have either child care/child watch, preschool, or before/after school programming. These sites are situated in a diverse number of environments, including shelters and transitional housing, school districts, and nonprofits.
Description of need, problem or opportunity to be addressed:
The 4Cs Building Kids Up Service Corps fills an unmet educational need for children in our community by addressing factors that limit school success. In San Mateo County, only 49% of children enter school meeting the longitudinal standard that predicts
whether they will be at grade level proficiency in 3rd grade1. When thinking about what readiness skills are most important to kindergarten entry, teacher placed the highest important on

Statement of specific program objective(s):
Through the 4Cs Building Kids Up Service Corps, an estimated number of 192 children will be the beneficiaries of services at five service sites. “High need” target populations will be identified through a School Readiness Assessment administered by the ACMs that is based on the Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP). Children with scores of 3 and below on the School Readiness Assessment are identified as “high need” and will receive a higher level of service. 75% of children identified as needing more preparation and receiving 20 hours of services will show significant increases in school readiness.

4Cs has chosen to embed the Building Kids Up Service Corps in our Resource and Referral department because the program is a resource to the community. 4Cs can
share with ACMs its organizational wisdom and experience through training and supervision.
Description of the key anticipated outcomes of the program:
The primary end outcome we expect to achieve as a result of our activities is to help
children be more prepared for school success by the end of 3rd grade. The outputs that will drive toward this end outcome are the work delivered by the ACMs to ensure each child receives an individualized assessment and targeted interventions. An intermediate step along this continuum is that children will show better
