Hopkins Community Education - Schools & Community Connector
The Minnesota Alliance With Youth VISTA program places members in nonprofits, government, and schools in the Twin Cities to create, connect, and leverage resources to address education inequities such as the opportunity and achievement gaps. We build capacity, coordinate efforts that bridge and build the integration of school and community-wide support for youth, and actively engage youth as agents of change in closing these gaps. Our 20 person cohort meets regularly for professional development, team building, and peer support. This position is placed at Hopkins Community Education. Hopkins Community Education is the north star of lifelong learning & enrichment for our community. We serve the community by welcoming all learners, honoring culture, and inspiring remarkable growth and achievement. The Schools & Community Connector VISTA will increase our capacity in reaching our department’s goal of providing equitable and inclusive settings for learners of all ages to discover, lead, and thrive. Through these efforts, the demographics of Hopkins Community Education learners will be more representative of our school district, and mechanisms will be put in place for its programs to accurately reflect the dynamic needs in the community. Main focus of the VISTA’s project includes: Expanding greater and more equitable community access to Community Education opportunities through the implementation of a robust communications, marketing, and social media infrastructure. Working with the Community Education team, a Youth Advisory Board, district leaders, and community stakeholders to rebuild the Hopkins Family Services Collaborative into a functioning, effective, action-oriented, and youth-centered collective of Hopkins Public Schools staff and community members.
