West Virginia STEM Afterschool Expansion VISTA
 
 
 
The West Virginia Statewide Afterschool Network is implementing new and progressive initiatives to expand integrated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning opportunities in West Virginia afterschool programs and we are looking for passionate, mission-driven individual to join our team. High quality afterschool programs have shown to increase student academic performance and behavioral improvements. These programs also provide excellent opportunities for youth to explore new topics, such as STEM, without the typical time constraints that occur during the school day. To increase these types of opportunities for youth throughout the state, better coordination, increased partnerships, and additional funding are all necessary. The STEM Afterschool Expansion AmeriCorps VISTA will work to build partnerships with STEM-related businesses, industry partners, higher education officials, and schools to increase out of school time STEM collaborations and improve the overall quality of afterschool programs. To learn more about the Afterschool Alliance’s nationwide VISTA program, and to view our other open positions, please visit: https://www.afterschoolalliance.org/vista.cfm
