DCPS Community Partnerships Fellow
With a strong record of developing reciprocal, respectful, active, and democratic partnerships, George Washington University (GWU) in downtown Washington DC is seeking a VISTA to serve as a School Partnerships VISTA in the Office of Engagement and Partnerships (OEP) in the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS). The VISTA will increase the capacity of the DCPS School Partnerships Division through new research, identification of best practices, and creation of new tools. The VISTA will work for one year with GWU and DCPS staff and community members and will be able to build education-related knowledge and experience, as well partnership development, project management, and communication skills. The year-long project term is somewhat variable, based on the start date, but will likely begin in July 2022. We are seeking candidates who excel in relationship-building, are results-oriented and comfortable taking initiative, and have strong communications and project management skills. This is a full-time (40hrs a week) 12 month service term with the GW/DCPS AmeriCorps VISTA Program. The project term is from 7/2022-7/2023.
