The work of the integrated and interconnected partnership, as well as the work by each individual partner, is focused on impacting the system at multiple levels to ensure systemic, sustainable positive change. This is a New Jersey Campus Compact Statewide Collective Impact AmeriCorps VISTA Project.

We seek a qualified, civic-minded individual to be the AmeriCorps VISTA serving at School Culture and Climate Initiative.
