The STAR Center (Summer)
The STAR Center's Building Together Project places Americorps*VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) members with non-profit organizations that work with children and adults with disabilities statewide, as well as other agencies that empower communities to get out of poverty. Building Together Project VISTA members work to build the capacity of the individual organizations where they serve and collaborate with other VISTA members on the development of resources, trainings, and related projects. Through their service, the Building Together Project's VISTA members endeavor to build a network that facilitates collaboration, support, and the sharing of ideas among a diverse group of participating organizations.

Member Duties : Building Together Project Summer VISTA Members will serve 350 at-risk children and youth through education summer camps and programs to prevent summer learning loss; serve meals and snacks to underprivileged children and youth on a daily basis, five days per week; increase awareness of community resources for veterans and military families; recruit volunteers to assist with summer camps and fundraising events; and raise $5,000 for scholarships for low-income students to receive educational services.
