GSC Hosts AmeriCorps VISTA Members

Granite State College will be a host site for two AmeriCorps VISTA members beginning this Fall.

The VISTA members will fill two roles. The first will serve as a College & Career Connections Coordinator in the STEAM Ahead Program at Manchester West High School. This VISTA member will help low-income high school students understand the college options available to them, as well as strengthening college readiness. The second will be based at the GSC Claremont site, and will serve as a Literacy Partnership Coordinator in support of a community-based effort to improve literacy throughout Sullivan County.

Congratulations go to the GSC team for coming up with a creative solution for two areas of need, and for successfully working with Campus Compact to secure the appointments.
