Website: SITE: The Vermont Council on World Affairs (VCWA) is expanding its efforts of developing and providing enrichment activities to low-income rural youth across Vermont. VCWA, founded in 1952 by the first U.S. Ambassador to the UN, provides opportunities to build awareness and understanding of the world and its people, while developing skills and experience that enhance academics and marketable skills. VCWA’s youth programs encourage diverse participation, expand knowledge of international affairs, build a variety of skills, and highlight new career paths for low-income rural young Vermonters. The AmeriCorps VISTA focuses on expanding access to VCWA’s youth programs and opportunities for youth from historically underrepresented groups, including low-income rural communities, New Americans, and BIPOC youth in the small towns across Vermont. By offering opportunities, low-income and underrepresented youth build resiliency and the ability of to make good life choices. The AmeriCorps VISTA member expands youth initiatives by researching funding opportunities, writing grant proposals, and developing accessible, inclusive, and sustainable youth and educational programs across rural Vermont. COVID-19: The impact of social isolation and remote learning has created barriers for low-income rural youth. The VISTA supports our efforts to address these barriers expanding educational programming specifically targeting afterschool and extracurricular opportunities for youth.
