Member Duties : PathWays PA is pursuing several new opportunities to build capacity in financial education work. A VISTA member as part of any of these ventures would be key in recruiting organizations and individuals to attend the center, to create and deliver workshops at the center, and to provide data collection, tracking, and benchmarking as this new project takes off. Other potential projects include recruitment, data collection and tracking for a new incentive-based financial education program to ensure clients stay engaged and work towards long-term financial success. This project may include a research-based component involving a control group and a study group. A VISTA presence would be crucial in developing tracking and measurement materials and increasing the knowledge of existing staff around data and research methods.
