Junior Achievement North - Engagement & Equity VISTA
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 Junior Achievement North (JA North). JA's mission is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Our K-12 programs empower students to be ready for the real world by showing them how to earn and manage money, excel in their careers, and apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. JA programs align to three pathways: Financial Literacy, Work and Career Readiness, and Entrepreneurship. Through a continuum of progressive learning experiences, students acquire the competencies needed to reach their full potential. JA’s unique program model leverages thousands of volunteers who deliver experiential lessons to students. JA is committed to students with the greatest need for enhanced learning opportunities, including youth of color and students from low-income backgrounds. The Engagement & Equity VISTA will play a pivotal role in building the long-term infrastructure for Junior Achievement’s goal of becoming a more inclusive organization. This position will work closely with the Engagement & Equity team, cross-functionally, and externally to build out longstanding processes, presentation and training materials, and external engagement materials. The Engagement & Equity VISTA will have the opportunity to make a direct impact on the students we serve, the staff, the organization, and the community.
