WSU VISTA- Rise Up For Youth- Community Outreach VISTA
This is an outstanding opportunity to learn about a new community and develop valuable skills for future employment as well as changing the lives of young people. Rise Up For Youth inspires and motivates future generations to unlock their full potential through education, mentoring, and empowerment. Through our two mentoring programs, CLASS–Caring Ladies Assisting Students to Succeed–and Do You Want To Live Or Die?, Rise Up For Youth works to keep students in school, out of legal trouble, and on their way to a life of purpose. Every program participant has their own unique story. They need extra support–academically, emotionally, and socially–to get through school. The Community Outreach Coordinator VISTA will create a marketing and communication plan for Rise Up For Youth, Inc. You will have an opportunity to share our unique story from our founders and staff and share the vision of our organization to better promote the work we do with clients, funders, and community members.
