LearningWorks - Alumni & Community Engagement Coordinator
Since 2000, the mission of LearningWorks is to offer challenging academic enrichment to a representative group of high-potential middle school students in the Minneapolis Public Schools, over summers and on school-year Saturdays. We also draw talented, diverse high school and college students into education by engaging them in the art of teaching. This unique partnership between The Blake School and Minneapolis Public Schools is an aspirational vision of what school and learning can be for all students, in a diverse community where “it’s cool to be smart, cool to be you, and cool to care.” LearningWorks is actively seeking a highly motivated and team-oriented AmeriCorps VISTA member to join our diverse and dedicated team. The The Alliance VISTA will work in partnership with the supervisor and host site to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the LearningWorks alumni network by expanding resources and community partnerships as well as developing college bound programming to support high-school aged youth on their path to and through college. **This position is part of the Minnesota Alliance With Youth Cohort. This cohort provides a learning community of 20 fellow VISTA members service projects geared toward educational equity. We provide monthly+ professional development training and additional support throughout the year.
