2020 Centro SOL Youth Program
The overall goal of the AmeriCorps VISTA project is to expand the Centro SOL Youth program so that it can benefit our youth.An evaluation plan to assess our curriculum will be implemented throughout the school year. The specific objectives of the AmeriCorps VISTA project are to:¿Seek additional summer and after school opportunities by expanding partnerships with community organizations and academic institutions, with emphasis on college application and resources for non-citizen children, and information for parents with limited English proficiency¿Improve a year-long plan mentoring/tutoring working alongside youth and parent advisory board that can help inform the VISTA activities¿Implementation and reassessment of standardize curriculum and best practices manual that can be adapted and replicated in other settings¿Review curriculum for parents of Latino youth to familiarize them with post-high school opportunities for their children¿Implement evaluation plan for the expanded curriculum¿Maintain data management system and resources to organize and track volunteers, educational activities, and outcomes¿Support expenses and funding monitoring for the youth programming during the summer and throughout the school year. Our vision is to awaken an interest in healthcare among low-income Latino youth and offer mentored clinical and research opportunities. Despite being the fastest growing population in the US, Latinos are underrepresented in medicine. This is a problem because Latino healthcare providers are more likely to provide health care to populations that are medically underserved, and to speak Spanish, which is associated with improved patient outcomes for those with limited-English proficiency. A healthcare workforce that is representative of the community it serves is a critical step to reduce health disparities.We are looking for a passionate fellow to empower and mentor youth in our program

Member Duties : The VISTA will support funding opportunities for educational programs, such as those aimed at enhancing the pipeline for underrepresented minorities in the health professions. The VISTA will assist in the writing and preparation of the grant proposals, and in developing an evaluation plan for the existing program and its expansion. The VISTA will also identify partners who are interested in working together to expand our capacity to provide meaningful opportunities to all the students who apply to our program. The VISTA will coordinate outreach activities, and update the Centro SOL website so that it is easier to navigate and has links to relevant opportunities and programs. Americorps focus on education is an important added asset for our team, which is primarily composed of health providers with medical education experience, but less expertise in high school education.
