Rural Career and College Readiness VISTA
 
 
 
Better Together Central Oregon (bettertogethercentraloregon.org) is regional, cross-sector partnership working collectively to improve child and youth success from before birth to career. VISTA Members will focus their outreach and partnership development efforts in four priorities along the cradle to career continuum: 1) Early Learning and Wellness, 2) Supporting Families, 3) Bridging vulnerable transitions and 4) Aligning education/training with career. The VISTA will serve in critical support of the complex social issue of ensuring long-term student success. VISTA will serve with Central Oregon Community College(cocc.edu) to develop pathways to increase capacity and reduce barriers low income, rural students face, with a specific focus on Prineville and La Pine, Oregon.
