AmeriCorps VISTA - Community Impact Coordinator

One of the best ways to escape poverty is through education. United Way of the Midlands is recruiting a VISTA partner to support UWM’s efforts to address school absenteeism. Chronic absenteeism, defined as missing 10% or more of the school year, puts students at risk academically and is a primary predictor of poor academic performance, and school drop-out.

You will be a part of community change where you will:

  • Expand the reach of our Attendance Awareness Campaign with a focus on expanding our digital presence
  • Enhance capacity building of the School-Based Attendance Coalition by promoting awareness, identifying training and professional development needs, and building partnerships;
  • Help plan and execute key events like outreach activities, community kickoffs and a conference; and
  • Walk away from this role with a strong knowledge of community impact initiatives and systems change, while investing in your own personal development.

Applicants must create a profile through AmeriCorps and apply through their website.
