Though the Title IV Work Study program, USU’s America Reads Tutors serve in 24 local schools and reach an average of 1200 students per day. Tutors work in Afterschool Programs throughout the Cache Valley providing reading, math and academic enrichment activities for our local youth. To be eligible to work as an America Reads Tutor USU students must have completed a FAFSA, be eligible for Work Study and have a matching schedule for our hours. They must also possess the desire and skills to work with our public schools and students.
Through the Utah Campus Compact we are able to offer 40, 300 hour AmeriCorps service positions in the area of education. Students receive an $1175 education award for successfully completing their service. USU students and high school seniors (minimum age 17) are eligible to apply.

"…recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world”
Through organizing and presenting community events students have the opportunity to study issues related to the Universal Declaration Of Human rights, particularly the right to education, the right to an adequate standard of living, and the right to participate in their community. Uncommon Collective participants become more connected with their community, their school, Utah State University and a diverse group of people. They will also gain confidence in their ability to take appropriate and positive action as they learn to organize and present events.
The mission of the C5 Youth Program is to inspire high-potential youth from risk-filled environments to pursue personal success, to prepare them for leadership roles in college, work and community, and to motivate them to become role models for others.
C5 was originally sponsored by Coca Cola but now has over 60 corporate supporters.
As freshmen in high school C5 students from Atlanta, Dallas, Boston and Los Angeles have the opportunity to spend a night and a day on the USU campus before going into the Wyoming wilderness for a 10 day backcountry experience. When the students visit USU we spend the evening having dinner and informal conversation with them. On the following day we have an admissions presentation and campus tour along with planned activities to introduce the students to college life.
Anyone interested in participating as a host for the C5 groups please contact: Todd Milovich firstname.lastname@example.org
