2021/22 AmeriCorps Promise Fellow Impact Study Findings
In 2022, the Alliance contracted with Dr. Ethan Van Norman, Ph. D. (Lehigh University) to conduct an Impact Study of the 2021-22 AmeriCorps Promise Fellow program, focusing on the program’s impact on school attendance. Results from the Impact Study showed significant attendance gains for students served by Promise Fellows.
✏️The study found that, on average, students that participated in the program attended an additional week, or roughly five days of school, relative to students that did not participate in the program.
🍎The largest effects were observed among high school students and the analysis also indicated a larger benefit for Asian American, Latinx and multiracial students; with each of these student demographic groups showing an increase of approximately 10 additional days of school attendance each year.
