TSC VISTA 2022: Vive Shelter, Jericho Road Community Health
The Service Collaborative (TSC) VISTA Program mobilizes AmeriCorps VISTA members to function in organizations, government agencies and educational institutions. Members focus on expanding educational opportunities, ensuring economic opportunity for all and creating healthy futures for the residents of low-income communities. Our goals are to strengthen communities across the state and to allow organizations within them to better provide services to impoverished individuals and families. The Service Collaborative VISTA program has partner organizations in New York State and across the country. During their term of service members, will receive support from our VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY. Our support includes monthly trainings, a social network of fellow members and daily support from VISTA Leaders.

Member Duties : Vive was founded in 1984 by community leaders that saw a need to assist the influx of individuals from Central and South America who wanted to seek asylum in the United States or Canada due to the inability to return to their homeland. Jericho Road is committed to carrying on the 30-year legacy of providing legal aid and safe refuge to persons seeking asylum in the United States and Canada. In this project, the AmeriCorps VISTA would be responsible for researching how to best create academic engagement opportunities for the children living at Vive Shelter. The VISTA would be researching and building the infrastructure to provide educational opportunities to children who will be in Vive for a short period of time. This research may include the best models to provide that education, any regulations or legal issues that we may run into, recruitment of teachers & organizations, volunteer management, curriculum building, etc.
