Campus Compact VISTA MSU Blue Zones
 
 
 
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 : Within Ingham County, Michigan there are nine opportunity zones with a “level of vulnerability” score of medium to high on the Health and Place Index. The Lansing region also scores particularly high on the Michigan Environmental Justice Screen map. With this as a backdrop, the Blue Zone VISTA will assess the built and natural environmental factors that influence health and lifespan. Blue Zones are areas reflecting lifestyle habits that lead to the average life space increasing by 10-12 years. Therefore, the Blue Zone VISTA will assess related health factors that are known to extend life span. This member will also assist to document related factors of poverty, circular transition and community wealth building on health and longevity. Additionally, initiatives that lend themselves to “priming” the ecosystem of circular transition to healthier futures will be compiled, analyzed and assessed.
