Hennepin Technical College, Eden Prairie VISTA, IAMNCC
 
 
 
HTC’s Mission is To provide excellence in career and technical education for employment and advancement in an ever-changing global environment. By joining Hennepin Technical College (HTC), you become part of a network of caring professionals committed to student success. More than 45% HTC students report some type of food insecurity and many students who experience basic needs insecurity do not receive public assistance. This data highlights why a VISTA is mission critical to the moving the needle on student persistence and completion. Assessing the needs of low-income students and underrepresented students and developing a path to consistently available resources is an important step in supporting student success. This project is part of the Community Corps VISTA Program, operated by Iowa & Minnesota Campus Compact. The program strives to eliminate poverty through campus-community partnerships by placing full-time capacity building support in nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions. There are three focus areas, this project being in the Health Corps, which supports sites in long-term approaches to the social determinants of health. This includes meeting low-income student needs and a variety of projects with health-focused community organizations. Interviews will occur on a rolling basis. Preference given to candidates who apply early.
