Campus Compact VISTA Welcomes the 2019-2020 Corps
In July, Campus Compact for Southern New England welcomed 25 new VISTA members for a year of national service at host sites in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Virginia. This is the third VISTA cohort in Southern New England, with new members joining 10 other VISTAs already in service or renewing their service this year.
Campus Compact VISTA members dedicate a year of service building capacity for anti-poverty projects focused on K-12 and college education equity, workforce development, basic needs security, addiction prevention and recovery, and mental health. Campus Compact VISTA is funded by a $1.2 million grant from the Corporation for National Service that supports 70 positions nationally through Campus Compact.
