SUM Associate, VISTA Horizons Student Enrichment Program HGB
 
 
 
Horizons Greater Boston provides high-quality, tuition-free summer enrichment programs in partnership with Boston Public School host institutions. Our students attend a 5-week, full-day summer program on the campuses of schools across the Greater Boston Area. In small classes led by professional teachers, our students dive into rich curricula focused on literacy and math. Swimming and other confidence-boosting activities break down barriers to success, expose children to new opportunities, and promote healthy youth development. On average, Horizons students achieve 2-3 months academic growth in reading and math and return to school in the fall prepared and confident. AmeriCorps VISTA members will receive direct, hands on experience supporting a broad range of youth enrichment and development activities. Members will also engage directly with all levels of program stakeholders and offer ways to strengthen program activities. AmeriCorps VISTA members will be assigned to work at a Boston Public School site, where they will work closely with the Site Director to assist in the daily operations of the program.
