Brown University Inspiring Minds Outreach VISTA
 
 
 
The Brown University AmeriCorps VISTA Fellowship is a full-time service opportunity hosted through the Swearer Center at Brown University. Founded by Brown University President, Howard R. Swearer, The Swearer Center for Public Service is a community of scholars, students, practitioners, and community members that work together to build on community strengths and address community challenges. Through the creative capacities of our students, faculty, and community partners we explore, build, and implement collaborative and strategic projects, programs, and initiatives. Our work yields transformative learning and positive sustainable change through collective action. Interested applicants apply for a VISTA position at a local partner organization, state agency, or Swearer Center department to build capacity in organizations fighting poverty. These agencies work in the education, health, arts and/or economic justice sector. Current external Brown University AmeriCorps VISTA placement sites include: Beat the Streets Providence, Breakthrough Providence, House of Hope Community Development Corporation, Inspiring Minds, Providence After School Alliance, Providence Public Library, Social Enterprise Greenhouse, and Youth In Action. Inspiring Minds aims to empower students for success in school and life by supporting them with trusted relationships, tutoring and mentoring from inspired community members. The Inspiring Minds Partnership and Outreach VISTA will develop and implement systems for partnerships and outreach in order to demonstrably enhance critical elements in student achievement by delivering increasingly high-quality programs. This VISTA member will also build and maintain relationships with businesses, affinity groups, and parents to increase participation in Inspiring Minds programs and increase funding opportunities to sustain free programs for youth.
