The Community Engagement Coordinator VISTA members will build the capacity of Educational Justice by developing and implementing policies and procedures for Achievers (5th-8th grade students) and their families so that this model can be replicated and sustained in Louisville and beyond. The VISTA member will work closely with program participants to support Achievers and Activists (high-school tutors) throughout the year. In order to develop these systems and policies the VISTA member will support the Achievers and their families through the application and registration process, as well as strengthen the tutoring sessions between the Achiever and Activist to ensure greater impact on the Achiever’s academic growth.
