Campus Compact VISTA Michigan State U - Circular Economy
The Campus Compact AmeriCorps VISTA program places AmeriCorps VISTA members in full service with our campus and community partners for a one-year period. During this year, members spend 35 hours per week on their host site’s campus or with one of that campus’s community partners to work on building systems and programs that support low-income college students and community members. The VISTA member’s work is to build capacity, meaning that rather than directly serving the community, they’re enhancing or creating systems, structures, and resources that support the direct anti-poverty work. Campus Compact functions as the central VISTA program hub, performing program administration, offering training and support to VISTA members and their projects, and connecting the work happening in individual projects both to similar work happening nationwide and back to AmeriCorps.

Member Duties : A circular economy (CE) stands opposite of the current linear models of “take, make, waste”. CE proposes a fundamental shift from extraction to consciously designing communities for reuse, repair, and recycling. With a holistic view to developing Michigan circular economies, the Center for Community and Economic Development at MSU takes an asset-based approach to community and equitable economic development. With the intention of priming at-risk ecosystems, the Center and partners will identify low-income entrepreneurs and assist to build strategy to support their business. The VISTA will support this effort through data collection and assessment, asset mapping for ecosystem alignment and research to bring down procurement barriers, and conducting partner recruitment and outreach. Lastly, the member will also connect with MI Healthy Climate Plan AmeriCorps*State members to identify ecosystem linkages for climate justice that facilitate knowledge transfer and resource sharing.
