Campus Compact - University of New England
The Northern New England Campus Compact VISTA Collaboration is a full-time, post-graduate service opportunity program. VISTA members serve with K-12 schools, colleges and universities across beautiful Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont to build capacity in educational institutions fighting poverty. This VISTA Program provides high-impact professional development and training for our VISTA members. Training addresses skills required to carry out the assigned VISTA role, as well as skill-building that will be valuable to the VISTA member in their future professional pursuits. The program is a cohort-based experience that creates the opportunity to learn from peers in the program, to share what is learned in service, and to foster a supportive service year community.
Member Duties : The VISTA serving at the University of New England will expand and enhance the America Reads and America Counts Tutoring Program (ARAC) and College Aspirations Program (CAP)to support UNE's capacity to expand college access and success for low-income students.
