ILCC- College of Lake County Community Services Coordinator
The VISTA will interrupt the cycle of poverty by connecting students with local organizations that are in need of support and volunteer assistance. Students and student groups will be advised by the VISTA, who will assist in securing service placements, and conducting community asset mapping. VISTA will also collaborate directly with community partners that focus on economic opportunity and basic needs in order to develop robust volunteer programs. Under Administrator’s supervision, work with CLC’s Institutional Effectiveness Planning Research office to collect baseline data from Lake County to demonstrate education needs at feed high schools. The VISTA will collaborate with existing CLC community partners that focus on basic needs and poverty such as PADS, Eddie Washington Center, Catholic Charities, Lake County Housing Authority, etc. on evaluation and assessment of volunteer programs in order to help strengthen current programming and develop new programming.
