AmeriCorps State Program

The Nevada Outdoor School AmeriCorps Program is a community development program that provides human resources to worthy non-profits, professional and life-skills training for community members, and collaborations for best practices which in turn increases the overall outreach of the non-profits and enables citizens to live more meaningful and independent lives.

Nevada Outdoor School's AmeriCorps State program places full-time, part-time, and summer AmeriCorps members members at worthy organizations throughout rural northern Nevada. These members are individuals who are dedicating a year or summer of their lives to serving others in the community by being environmental stewards, educators, mentors, and caregivers.

Lander County School District is located in beautiful Battle Mountain and Austin, Nevada, two small communities nestled between several mountain ranges in Northeastern Nevada. Our K-12 public school district has an enrollment of approximately 1,300 students and offers comprehensive curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular programs through two high schools. Our district is renowned for its hospitality and for producing outstanding academic and activity performance.
The Wells Family Resource Center exists to provide an open center to meet the needs of children/parents/families. The Wells community has no other open forum where they can go to seek assistance, help, support or referral to other resources. In addition, the Wells Family Resource Center’s After School Connection program for elementary age children operates four days a week throughout the school year, giving children a safe and fun environment with a variety of different activities. “Steps for Success” is a new program intended to prepare 4- and 5-year-olds for kindergarten. “Early Steps to Learning” helps 2- and 3-year-olds with peer socialization, improves language and communication skills and provides a smooth separation from parents into an environment that supports children’s learning through their natural instinct of exploration.
