The VISTA member will continue the groundwork for growth established by Year One Stewards VISTA by conducting research and applying for funding sources; establishing new partnerships with donors, the media, and community shareholders; develop databases for donors and volunteers; create templates for outreach and event planning; and communicate regularly with stakeholders through various social media platforms. The VISTA member will assist with and/or lead programs or projects for the Park based on the President’s Great Society and War on Poverty legislations.
