Have you ever considered becoming an AmeriCorps Vista Member?
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members bring passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations that help eradicate poverty.
AmeriCorps VISTA members serve as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to meet our nation’s most pressing challenges and advance local solutions.
At YEScarolina, we’re looking for someone that applies to become a VISTA member to help us for one year, starting in July 2019!
As a VISTA member who works with YEScarolina, you’ll work with our Council of Educators to build a sustainable resource for our agency by creating Out of School Time (OST) curriculum kits. These kits will include daily lesson plans for our various after-school and summer programs, based on our accredited school day curriculum.
How OST Curriculum Kits Help Our Mission
The primary objective for the school day classes, after-school programs and camps are to provide an avenue for students to gain knowledge through business and entrepreneurial activities. Entrepreneurship is a relevant real-life way to learn and apply reading, writing and math skills, while teaching students how to create a business, grow wealth and develop workforce readiness skills. YEScarolina focuses on giving students knowledge in a concrete, hands-on environment which helps them to apply that knowledge beyond the classroom.
