Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley Summer Associate VISTA
The VISTA Summer Associate Program will support the efforts of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley in implementing Summer Learning Loss, Substance Abuse Prevention, and Child Nutrition programming. Summer Associates will engage community youth in proven-effective programming during daily peer and mentor-lead sessions focused in the three VISTA priority areas listed below, as well as other youth development programming such as Healthy Lifestyles and Good Character and Citizenship. Associates will assist in the facilitation of Summer Brain Gain, Positive Action, and Nutrition and Healthy Habits programming daily for all Club youth age 6 to 18. Summer Brain Gain is a fun, theme-based program that provides engaging project-based activities with an emphasis on math, literacy and 21st century skills. Positive Action is a mentor and peer-led program focused on empowering youth with the social competencies to make positive choices, avoid risky behaviors, and identify resources within their community for support in substance abuse prevention. Nutrition and Healthy Habits programming aims to provide healthy snacks and daily meals to youth, especially those coming from low-income households, as well as educating them on the importance of eating healthy and balanced diets as they learn, play, and grow. The program will fill the need for the Clubs to provide youth development mentors at service sites within their community. These positions are integral in ensuring our area Boys & Girls Clubs can effectively serve the youth of their communities, especially targeting those from socioeconomically disadvantaged circumstances, reaching larger audiences through expanded programming, made possible by the capacity-building opportunities the Summer Associates provide.

Member Duties : The Summer Associates will facilitate daily activities using both structure programs and high-yield activities.

Summer Associates will spend the first week undergoing an extensive training program alongside other Youth Development Professionals. Summer Associates will focus on the implementation of Summer Brain Gain, Positive Action, and Nutrition and Healthy Habits programming on a daily basis through small group peer and mentor-lead activities following structured curricula.
