Building Healthy Connections VISTA
These VISTA positions join Better Together Central Oregon—a regional, cross-sector partnership working collectively to improve children and youth success from before birth to career. 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 (defined as ending in a meaningful career). VISTA members will work to increase the capacity and sustainability of a cutting edge student success movement that is data driven, innovative and is gaining increasing recognition on the state and national stage. Through the frame of Collective Impact (see for more information on Collective Impact), VISTAs serving with Better Together will invite and engage schools, higher education institutions, businesses, government agencies, community based organizations, non-profits and individual community members to come together around this common mission of aligning our existing, emerging and future efforts around twenty-five partner identified shared outcome measures from before birth to career. The VISTA members will work to encourage the community to continue to rally around a simple, but profoundly compelling call to action: “Find your role, help students excel - we’re Better Together!"

Member Duties : Family Resource Center's project will focus on program development and outreach across the region with an emphasis in areas of high poverty. Parenting skills are critical to children's optimal well-being and development. Research has shown that effective parenting education can strengthen and support families and communities in the prevention of child abuse and neglect, promote protective factors and lead to positive outcomes for both parents and children of low income families. The VISTA will support the Building Healthy Connections project, a project working to increase the capacity of Family Resource Center to deliver parenting education and to increase engagement with populations living in poverty.
