Communications VISTA, Andy Roddick Foundation
The mission of the Andy Roddick Foundation is "to work with our community to expand opportunities for young people to learn, thrive and succeed." Through high-quality afterschool activities developed in cooperation with the Austin Independent School District, as well as an acclaimed six-week summer program, investing in innovative summer activities, and other joint initiatives with key groups throughout the city, we are creating new chances for all kids to grow in literacy, STEM, art, and sports — all during months and times of day when statistics show they’re typically most at risk and falling behind. The Foundation is in the midst of a growth and expansion plan with the desire to partner with more schools and increase investments in out­of-school time efforts. It piloted its summer learning program in 2014 in one school, Pecan Springs Elementary, and currently assessing the feasibility of adding a fourth school partner. This expansion will require the Foundation to increase its capacity within the Communications and Development department, the Foundation will need to increase its capacity to develop and create content for its website, monitor and track, and increase media presence and mentions, improve social media reach, develop and increase the effectiveness of a donor database, and create and enhance templates for newsletters and other online and social media based communications. By increasing the capacity of the Andy Roddick Foundation to better serve the educational and enrichment needs of underserved students, the VISTA is working to break the cycle of poverty.
