SUM Associate, VISTA Horizons Student Enrichment Program ATL
Horizons Atlanta provides high-quality, tuition-free summer enrichment programs in partnership with nine host institutions, serving over 1,000 young scholars in 2020. Our scholars attend a 6-week, full-day summer program on the campuses of independent schools, colleges, and universities across metro Atlanta. In small classes led by professional teachers, our students dive into rich curricula focused on literacy and STE(A)M. Swimming and other confidence-boosting activities break down barriers to success, expose children to new opportunities, and promote healthy youth development. On average, Horizons scholars achieve 2-3 months academic growth in reading and math and return to school in the fall prepared and confident. AmeriCorps VISTA members will receive direct, hands on experience supporting a broad range of youth enrichment and development activities, as well as observe multiple programs across Horizons Atlanta’s unique regional network model in action. Members will also engage directly with all levels of program stakeholders and offer ways to strengthen program activities. AmeriCorps VISTA members will be assigned to work directly with the Site Director at one of our program sites during their 6-week programs (mid to late July, depending on the site), after which the individual will support either the Horizons Atlanta Executive Director or Regional Program Director at our Georgia Tech regional office for the remainder of his/her term.
