Volunteer Systems Coordinator VISTA
 
 
 
TOGETHER! incorporated and was granted Washington State non-profit corporation status in September 1989, and IRS 501(c)(3) determination in June 1990. TOGETHER! is poised at the cutting edge of youth development, strategically adopting the latest research, best practices and evidence based programs, to help us achieve our vision that all young people are supported, healthy, safe and valued. Two main models best describe our work are the Communities in Schools model and Communities that Care. Communities in schools: Using public schools as hubs, the Community Schools Initiative brings community based organizations and public services together to offer a coordinated range of supports and opportunities to children, youth and families. Partners work to achieve shared results: Children enter school ready; students attend school regularly; students are engaged in school and the community; families are involved with their children's education; and students succeed academically; students are healthy - physically, socially, and emotionally. Communities that Care: Communities That Care is a science-based public health approach proven to promote healthy youth development and reduce youth health and behavior problems community wide. Developed by Drs. J. David Hawkins and Richard Catalano at the University of Washington, Communities That Care employs the Social Development Strategy to foster young people’s wellbeing through opportunities, skill-building and recognition. In this way, protective factors are strengthened and risk factors are reduced, resulting in healthier kids, families and communities. A rigorous scientific trial of the Communities That Care model demonstrated reductions in rates of youth violence, crime and substance use. Join TOGETHER! to support the health and wellbeing of youth in our area! Develop and implement a volunteer recruitment plan enabling us to generate a robust group of volunteers to support economically disadvantaged youth and families.
