18-19 United Way of Central Iowa: Reading Into Success VISTA
The United Way of East Central Iowa’s Reading into Success program focuses on supporting children who face opportunity gaps, often the result of low socio-economic status. The VISTA project will serve Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) students in the four Cedar Rapids school districts. Across these districts, 38.84% of students are eligible for FRL as reported by Iowa Department of Education. The largest district, Cedar Rapids, has a FRL rate of 51%. Reading into Success programs and strategies are implemented in schools that have a FRL population of 30% or higher. United Way of East Central Iowa is a part of the Iowa Campus Compact (IACC) VISTA Community Corps program. IACC is a membership organization for colleges and universities committed to the public role of higher education. The IACC VISTA Community Corps builds partnerships between member campuses and community-based organizations, building capacity and alleviating poverty in relation to education and economic opportunity. While IACC VISTA positions are located across the state of Iowa, this position is located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
