Start something really big; help create CommunityCorps, a new idea for Community College based service. Help us recruit our first volunteers and place them in existing projects throughout our region.
Talent Scout Description
We are River Parishes Community College in Gonzales, Louisiana and are dedicated to helping the members of our community transform their lives through education and training that will equip them to immediately join the workforce of tomorrow.
We are one of 13 member colleges of the Louisiana Community College System and want to lead the way for our sister institutions by creating a program to truly live out the word "Community." We want to give back to our region more than just our graduates.
Community Corps is a service organization with one purpose, to help existing agencies and projects in our area get the volunteer help they truly need to be successful.
Our VISTA volunteer in the position of "Talent Scout" will develop a sustainable means of recruiting short-term volunteers from our student body, faculty, staff and employees of our supporting business partners and then working closely our VISTA "Opportunity Scout" to match those volunteers to the agencies and projects in need in our region.
This River Parishes Community College Team will work closely with a duplicate team at Northshore Technical Community College in Hammond, Louisiana to ensure broad impact in the services areas of both colleges.
Both VISTA volunteers will be critical in measuring our success by helping establish important measures and evaluating our progress.
