*Campus Compact - Maine USM STEM Ambassadors Coordinator
Maine Campus Compact (MCC) is a statewide coalition of colleges and universities whose purpose is to further the public purposes and civic mission of higher education. MCC’s team of 10 VISTAs will develop programming that mobilizes college students to increase college aspirations in Maine’s K-12 youth with an emphasis on low-income students. As part of a dynamic team in the Community Engagement & Career Development office, University of Southern Maine's AmeriCorps VISTA 4-H STEM Ambassadors Coordinator will be a catalyst for the development of the 4-H STEM Ambassadors program at USM, partnering with local schools to increase college aspirations with an emphasis on low-income students, improve STEM literacy through hands on projects, and provide engaged learning opportunities for college students. USM is a comprehensive public university of 7,000+ students in Portland, Maine. Local K-12 schools enroll students from families who have immigrated from Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, and more, as well as economically disadvantaged Maine-born students. These students may struggle to gain a social and economic foothold. This VISTA work supports USM students in preparing for life, work, and citizenship, while meeting community-identified needs.
