PHENND Fellows - School Community Partnerships Coordinator
Join a cohort that works to strengthen communication, collaboration and community in local Philadelphia schools by setting the stage for collection action. PHENND seeks 16 AmeriCorps VISTAs to serve as Community Partnerships Coordinators at 16 different schools all across the city. This is the ninth year of an AmeriCorps VISTA project in which VISTAs are placed in selected Philadelphia public schools and offices at the School District of Philadelphia to help manage, develop, and track external community partners. The AmeriCorps VISTAs sought for this coming year will coordinate and facilitate partnerships between their school and existing and/or potential outside community partners with the goal of integrating their services into the school’s schedule and meeting major school needs, thereby ensuring that these partnerships are mutually beneficial, sustainable and serving students effectively. The VISTAs will work directly with administrators and teachers to ensure strong communication between and among external partners and key school leadership. PHENND (The Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development) is a 31-year-old consortium of over 25 colleges and universities in the Greater Philadelphia region. The consortium actively seeks to revitalize local communities and promote civic responsibility through service learning among the region's higher education institutions. As part of our K-16 Partnerships Network, the PHENND VISTA project represents a seventh year of partnership with the School District of Philadelphia to expand the infrastructure for community partnership development across Philadelphia.
