NC Afterschool Corps VISTA
The NC Afterschool Corps will build the capacity of afterschool and expanded learning programs that serve low-income children, while strengthening these programs’ connection to local colleges and universities. NC Afterschool Corps members will work to recruit and train afterschool volunteers, increase funding and resources to these programs, and expand local awareness of the value of afterschool. Corps members will also enhance civic and community engagement by implementing “Design for Change” afterschool programming, a project-based curriculum that empowers young people to solve local programs through design-thinking and action. Selected candidates must report to their service placement site on January 22, 2019. Selected candidates must also attend an in-person Orientation January 23-24, 2019 at Elon University. (Travel & expenses will be paid by NC Campus Compact.) The NC Afterschool Corps is an AmeriCorps VISTA project sponsored by North Carolina Campus Compact. North Carolina Campus Compact is a collaborative network of colleges and universities committed to educating students for civic and social responsibility, partnering with communities for positive change, and strengthening democracy. The NC Campus Compact state office -- located at Elon University -- fosters connections between campuses, shares best practice information and resources, recognizes outstanding work, and champions civic and community engagement in higher education.
