Campus Compact VISTA Museum of the Pacific War
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. For detailed program information and FAQs, please visit our website.

Member Duties : The National Museum of the Pacific War (NMPW) provides the nation’s most comprehensive account of World War II in the Asiatic Pacific theater. Our mission is to use our collection to promote responsible citizenship and leadership, inspiring all generations to understand the enduring impact and relevance of the Pacific War. The VISTA member will play a pivotal role in the development and implementation of a new program at NMPW. This project aims to address educational disparities and cycles of poverty by providing underserved schools with access to high-quality educational resources. The focus of this initiative involves the creation of engaging traveling trunks that are designed to enhance K-12 academic success, foster student engagement, and develop crucial socio-emotional skills. The VISTA member will research and create two traveling trunks that consist of lesson plans aligned to state and national educational standards, supplemental activities, and artifacts from our collection.
