Member Duties : Founded in 2009, Health Sciences Charter School is one of the only college and career readiness high schools in NY State that provides traditionally under-served youth with hands-on exposure to the health sciences industry. In addition, the school provides urban youth with an understanding of setting personal and career goals that will result in economic stability, ending the vicious cycle of poverty most live in today. The VISTA member will join the Work Based Learning (WBL) team at the school and support the creation of new internships and engaging career readiness programming for students in grades 9-12. The overarching goal of the Health Sciences' VISTA project is to work with staff from the WBL program to increase the school's capacity to expose traditionally underserved students to multiple career pathways in the health sciences field through career exploration and readiness programming and place them in internships that will prepare them for the pursuit.
