Member Duties : The Rural Outreach Center (ROC) The Rural Outreach Center is changing lives of those living in rural poverty – and we’re changing the future for generations to come. Each day, ROC is supporting those who have made the decision to improve their lives, learn new behaviors and become self-sufficient. ROC is focused on the bigger picture – eliminating rural poverty by addressing the multi-faceted needs of those living on the edge. ROC makes a long-term commitment to individuals who want to grow and improve their lives. We help people identify the barriers that are keeping them in poverty and then help them develop ways to break down those barriers. The VISTA member will be focused on a key component to meeting ROC’s goal – developing the organizational capacity to launch a pilot employment training program. This includes working with staff and volunteers on research, data collection, business plan development, goal setting, and fundraising.
