The HandsOn VISTA program supports 20 VISTA members at multiple placement sites across the valley.

Member Duties : Join the HandsOn Your Experience Counts team to support a program which helps struggling students learn, engages retirees in meaningful service, and is helping bring education into the 21st century. YEC is a academic support program that brings community organizations and volunteers together; we work closely with schools to recruit and train volunteers to work alongside teachers in classrooms of 3rd-6th graders on reading, writing, math and science. Your service year will be focused on supporting recruitment and retention efforts, promoting the program through media outlets and setting the program on a sustainable foundation by formalizing processes and preparing the position duties to be handed off to staff once your service ends. The successful candidate should be friendly in-person and on the phone, eager to learn, be attentive to details, be moderately creative, and enthusiastic about trying new things, especially in the area of STEAM - Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math.
