Opportunity Scout, RPCC

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

Opportunity 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 will be a service organization with one purpose, to help the existing agencies and projects in our area get the volunteer help they truly need to be successful.

Our VISTA volunteer in the position of "Opportunity Scout" will create a sustainable means of identifying and maintaining relationships with our regions' agencies, identifying projects in need of short-term volunteers, and then working closely with our VISTA "Talent Scout" to identify and match volunteers to the appropriate agencies and projects in need in our region.

This RPCC 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
