Student Support Program Development VISTA, Lumen High School
This project is supervised by Lumen High School, which is committed to elevating the lives of teen parents by providing high academic standards with a specialized, onsite child development center. Lumen was co-created with teen parents who desired a high-quality educational option and is centered on the core values of belonging, flexibility, discovery, tenacity and empowerment and the idea that we are all learning together. The goal of this project is to provide resources for graduating Lumen students to be successful in their post-secondary pursuits to improve college and career outcomes. By strengthening the student support program at Lumen, this project will make high school graduation more accessible to parenting students and will prepare them for success in the post-secondary pathway of their choice. This position is in Spokane, in Eastern Washington, about 20 miles west of Idaho and 110 miles south of the Canadian border. Benefits include $575 biweekly living allowance. VISTA members who successfully complete the year receive their choice of either a Segal Education Award (valued at approximately $6,195) or an $1,800 cash stipend. AmeriCorps VISTA is the only AmeriCorps program where you can earn federal non-competitive eligibility, giving you an edge in the federal hiring process. All members in our program receive access to the CliftonStrengths assessment as a benefit of service and join a cohort of VISTA members throughout Spokane in professional and personal development opportunities. Additionally, the member placed at this project will receive mileage reimbursement or a bus pass or park-and-ride pass.
