NC Campus Compact VISTA (2014-15)
 
 
 
NC Campus Compact is a statewide coalition of 37 colleges and universities that are committed to educating civically-engaged graduates and strengthening communities. These engaged campuses strive to enhance their students’ sense of responsibility, citizenship, leadership, and awareness of community, and impact the community by partnering with local organizations to address real needs. Communities across our state face many challenges. The Opportunity Index ranks North Carolina 37th among the states, citing levels of poverty, unemployment, and youth unemployment that exceed national averages, and levels of high school graduation and access to post-secondary education that fall below the mark. At the same time, according to CNCS data on volunteering and civic life in America, North Carolina ranks 33rd in the percent of residents who regularly volunteer. NC Campus Compact VISTAs can address both of these concerns by: 1) engaging college students, faculty, and staff with key community partners that serve low-income people, and 2) building the capacity of those community-based organizations to better serve clients and meet community needs.

Member Duties : Members work with community agencies and college campuses to develop a partnership that addresses one of three areas: education (especially K-12 success or access to post-secondary education), economic opportunity (especially housing or financial literacy), or healthy futures (especially food security). Some VISTAs share work time between campus and community partner offices, and thereby gain experience in both non-profit and higher education arenas. Activities may include: • Assess community and agency needs and identify assets • Recruit and train volunteers • Develop data systems to manage people and performance • Create policies and procedures that increase agency effectiveness • Support citizen and student leadership and participation in service • Seek new resources through fund-raising and grant-writing • Facilitate service-learning placements, community-based research, and co-curricular opportunities that support communities • Promote AmeriCorps, VISTA, and national service
