ConnectHome VISTA 2020: Northern Ponca
The ConnectHome VISTA program, facilitated by Serve New York, collaborates with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to close the digital divide, and extend affordable internet access to low-income families throughout the nation. AmeriCorps VISTA members working with ConnectHome build capacity in organizations, government agencies, and institutions focusing on expanding educational opportunities and ensuring economic opportunity. Members work behind-the-scenes at organizations to build capacity, create sustainability, and indirectly serve the organization and their clients. Typical VISTA responsibilities include: grant writing, community outreach, fund development, curriculum building, creating partnerships, program development and execution. While serving, members receive support from the VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY, Inc. The support includes monthly training, a social network of fellow members, and daily support from VISTA leaders.

The VISTA will engage local resources to create interest in digital literacy and engagement with internet resources. The VISTA will assist the IHS clinic with pilot “Tele Med” opportunities, focusing on building capacity in rural areas, apply for grants for youth coding resources, and develop and implement curriculum with the youth throughout the tribe.
