School Readiness Coordinator VISTA
The United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley has committed to a goal of increasing the number of students reading on grade level by 2022. To reach this goal we will mobilize and coordinate a host of community partners to join the movement, align their efforts, raise the quality of strategies and programs delivered and value and celebrate a collective impact with students and families. We will accomplish this goal by leveraging individual, programmatic and systemic changes intentionally brought about through the implementation of the United Way Community School Model.
Member Duties : The VISTA will support the continued implementation of our Talking is Teaching's Talk, Read, Sing Campaign - exploring expansion of outreach and focusing on large scale messaging to reach families. They will create engagement activities for the Lehigh Valley Early Childhood Coalition on topics of Talk, Read, Sing, kindergarten transition, early childhood public policy, and work towards a primary method of digital engagement. The goal is for the VISTA's capacity building work to result in a natural synergy that is fully solidified, making it easier for partners and communities to participate in UWGLV early childhood education resources, rather than creating new strategies frequently when new organizations want to participate. For example, healthcare partners will have a field framework built out: any hospital, doctor's office, clinic, etc. will be presented with the strategies outlined with UWGLV's goals that is universal in this space.
