What does it mean to be a Northern New England Campus Compact VISTA Member?
Being a VISTA Member with the Northern New England Campus Compact VISTA Collaboration means joining the fight against poverty by rolling up your sleeves and going where you are needed across beautiful Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont to help colleges, universities, and K-12 schools to expand college access and success for low-income students. It might mean creating activities that introduce rural students to STEM careers, recruiting mentors and tutors to help students succeed and thrive, or assessing needs, analyzing evaluations, and recommending new materials, resources, or tools to make organizations more effective. It definitely means you are a leader, a collaborator, a problem solver, a critical thinker, a learner, and a creator ready to adapt, work hard, and commit to a year of service in the education field. It means you are ready – ready for an adventure, ready for a challenge, and ready to make a difference.
