TSC VISTA 2020: Mission Ignite
The Service Collaborative (TSC) VISTA Program mobilizes AmeriCorps VISTA members to function in organizations, government agencies and educational institutions. Members focus on expanding educational opportunities, ensuring economic opportunity for all and creating healthy futures for the residents of New York. Our goals are to strengthen communities across the state and to allow organizations within them to better provide services to impoverished individuals and families. The Service Collaborative VISTA program has partner organizations in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Geneva. During their term of service members will receive support from our VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY. Our support includes monthly trainings, a social network of fellow members and daily support from VISTA leaders.

Member Duties : Mission: Ignite (M:I) enhances educational opportunities and enriches lives through technology. Our team refurbishes computers and offers them, along with technology support, to high-need nonprofits and communities. M:I provides STEM, out of-school programming to agencies and schools, providing topics and hands-on projects such as robotics, coding, and design. To date, more than 30,000 computers have been installed in area schools and communities that have limited resources and access to technology. The AmeriCorps VISTA Fund Development Specialist works closely with M:I staff to develop and identify resources for funding including grants and diversified funding streams such as in-kind donations, that will help 60% of our clients to obtain STEM skills. This in turn, will help expand the existing program’s growth trajectory of raising $100.000 in grant funding and $50.000 of in-kind donations to M:I to support their initiative bridging the digital divide.
