CCSNE Education Equity VISTA Positions

May 9, 2019

Join Our Team!

Campus Compact for Southern New England is pleased to announce that they are recruiting two Campus Compact VISTAs to serve in our office in Worcester, MA. These VISTAs will help build the capacity of our member campuses in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island to advance educational equity. Both VISTA members will contribute to mapping and assessing existing programming, communications, grant-writing, and fundraising to promote education equity and partnerships.

Priority Deadline: June 1
Priority Start Date: July 22

The PK-12 Partnership VISTA will help build the capacity of higher education institutions to create and/or strengthen PK-12 programs that support low-income PK-12 students (e.g. tutoring, mentoring, social & emotional support, curriculum development, etc.).

The Postsecondary Success VISTA will help build the capacity of colleges and universities to mobilize resources and partnerships that support low-income college student readiness, retention, and success/completion, inclusive of enhancing efforts that support students’ basic needs (food, housing, etc.) and connect civic/community engagement initiatives and student support services to benefit low-income students.

These VISTAs will be part of a dynamic, motivated corps. Serving as a part of the Campus Compact VISTA corps provides VISTAs the chance to connect with corps members throughout multiple states, to create a network of support, and to share resources. Campus Compact supports the professional and personal growth of VISTA members through a variety of professional development opportunities and in-person trainings throughout their service year.
