Chisholm Trail RSVP-Standing Together on Meth Prevention
 
 
 
At STOMP (Standing Together on Meth Prevention) we believe that when we STAND TOGETHER as a community, we CAN and WILL make a difference for our future. STOMP is a non-profit organization whose primary focus is to educate the communities of Jack County and create a greater awareness of the dangers of methamphetamine use and crime awareness and prevention. The directors and the volunteers for this organization look forward to presenting educational programs publicly and in our schools, making educational and preventative materials available for students elementary age through high school and working with students volunteering their ideas and efforts to bring awareness of this national issue. The Drug Awareness and Prevention VISTA will build capacity through the research and development of drug education and prevention materials, increase community partnerships, volunteer recruitment and development of funding opportunities. AmeriCorps VISTA members perform only indirect service; interaction with clients will be limited and the member will spend the majority of his or her time in an office setting. However, the STOMP VISTA will play a dynamic role in ending poverty by establishing drug awareness programs and education to positively impact the community economically as well as socially due to a decline in drug use/abuse. As a STOMP Drug Awareness and Prevention VISTA you will be part of a cohort coordinated by the AmeriCorps VISTA North Texas project at Chisholm Trail RSVP, Inc. Early applications strongly encouraged. To learn more about STOMP, please visit www.jackcountystomp.com.
