Leader, VISTA at Horizons Student Enrichment Program-HN
Located in Westport, CT, Horizons National currently serves 62 affiliate sites across 19 states. Each affiliate site (typically on the campus of an independent school, college, or university) serves low-income students, starting in kindergarten and going through high school. Last year, we served over 6,000 students through a mix of academic support and enrichment programming in Horizons' six-week summer learning program and events during the school year. Since the central office acts as a “backbone” to the entire organization, you’ll be involved in service that will help us expand and develop our organizational and financial capacity. You’ll work directly with Horizons National staff members to assist and empower our affiliates and their management teams. In addition, this is a VISTA Leader position, and with that, this person will have the opportunity to help lead the national VISTA project, helping support and manage a projected 12 other full-time VISTAs and 30 Summer Associates that are placed at our affiliates across the country. This gives the member an exciting opportunity to gain rich experience and responsibility, while also being able to network and connect in a unique way that will enhance his/her service year. We are especially looking for experience with and/or interest in project management, communication, data analysis, and marketing, along with the usual Microsoft Office suite. We are extremely mission driven, and the work we do leads directly to helping transform the lives of students, families, and communities across the country.
