Service Year NC VISTA - Institute for Emerging Issues
The Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) at NC State University works to ensure the economic prosperity of North Carolina. We believe that today's complex challenges require citizens who can work together by identifying shared interests and, then, act collaboratively to achieve common goals. We work at a statewide level, but our statewide efforts, by their very nature, benefit from and inform local work. When people are working with people they know, and on problems that are real to them, they are more invested in the work and better appreciate their own agency in finding opportunities for action. We want you to gain as much as you can throughout your VISTA year. You will have the chance to learn from and network with experts across the state. Located in the Research Triangle, one of the top 10 places to live according to US News and World Report, IEI is close to everything that makes this area ‘cool.’ Check out the award-winning Hunt Library (yes, that’s our building), join in the ACC basketball rivalry, and partake in the music, art, and innovation that has made this area famous. We are looking for a go-getter. Someone who is highly organized, and not afraid to jump into the work and learn while doing. The position will require outreach to partners all across the state, so we are looking for someone with outstanding communication skills. Experience working in schools or with teachers, counselors or school administrators is a bonus.

Member Duties : The VISTA will work on a statewide level, contributing to three IEI initiatives to support low-income communities across North Carolina: Text, Talk, Future (primary responsibility), ReCONNECT NC, and KidsReadyNC. Two of these programs - Text, Talk, Future (TTF) and KidsReadyNC - aim to improve school outcomes in what is called the Crib to Career pipeline, though they each address different points in the pipeline. TTF is a texting-based program to encourage peer conversation around college and career readiness to get high school students talking about their career options after graduation. KidsReadyNC works to provide hands-on assistance and valuable data insights and resources to leaders in lower resourced communities to increase local investment in early childhood wellbeing. The VISTA will also support the work of IEI’s ReCONNECT NC Initiative that will explore the root causes of disconnection in the state.
