ConnectHome VISTA 2020: Rhode Island
 
 
 
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.

Member Duties : The RI Office of Innovation is a governor’s initiative that supports sustainable innovation across RI’s public systems. The VISTA will strengthen the RI Office’s ConnectRI initiative that operates for all Rhode Islanders to have access to affordable, in-home internet, as well as to learn necessary digital and financial literacy skills. The VISTA will create protocols and processes for increased collaboration across initiative partners, and host and ensure quality of bi-weekly conference calls about updates around digital equity. The VISTA will work to secure funding which would provide connectivity, devices, and training to program participants. The VISTA will also coordinate with partners in the execution of trainings and data collection on the program’s impact. The VISTA will support the strategic planning of the next phase of ConnectRI, expanding efforts to engage low-income Rhode Islanders beyond public housing authorities.
