Children First - Early Years Coordinator 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 Children First. Children First was founded in 1992 on the principles of collaborative action and a shared community vision to enable the healthy development of youth around the research-based 40 developmental assets. Its mission is to engage across the community – neighbors, parents, businesses, schools, health care, government, faith groups, etc. – to play an active role in setting up kids for success to thrive and flourish as adults. The VISTA member will help us launch a StriveTogether Network Cradle to Career educational partnership focused on closing opportunity gaps in St. Louis Park, MN. We seek to engage youth as change agents in our efforts actively. The VISTA will build an Early Years Action Group with a data-informed culture focused on population-level results and develop a community scorecard and partnership website. We are focused on key outcomes in a child’s life from cradle to career and use a data-informed, cross-sector partnership accountability structure based on Results-Based Accountability practices.
