Rock Star Supply Co. -- Saint Paul VISTA Program
The mission of Rock Star Supply Co. (RSS Co.) is to train and support a community of volunteers committed to helping at-risk high school students improve their educational experiences and outcomes. By providing individualized attention and modeling positive learning behaviors, Rock Star tutors give students the support they need to set homework goals, complete assignments, and develop a life-long love of learning. Our VISTA is primarily responsible for preparing our tutors for their work in our schools. If trained properly and utilized effectively, we feel that classroom tutors can make a lasting impact on the community as a whole and on the future of public education in our state. Equally important are the interactions between caring adults and students outside of school time. Our after-school programs seek to enhance youth engagement in the educational process by providing one-on-one or small group assistant with writing projects. Back at RSS Co. headquarters, our VISTA works with members of our organization's various committees to help refine our programs, reward our volunteers and build strong and lasting relationships with civic-minded creatives in our community. Volunteer management also includes fostering relationships with teachers, conducting routine surveys of students, volunteers, teachers and administrators, and spending time on-site. The data and feedback collected by our VISTA is a huge factor in our fundraising efforts. **This VISTA position is sponsored by the Saint Paul VISTA Program. Hosted in Mayor Chris Coleman's Office, the Saint Paul VISTA Program is comprised of a city-wide cohort of individuals -- placed at community organizations and schools -- dedicated to shaping the educational landscape for youth and families in Saint Paul.**
