Wisconsin DPI VISTA Project
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction AmeriCorps VISTA project seeks to build capacity of Cooperative Educational Service Agencies (CESAs) to support public school districts in working with students experiencing homelessness. VISTAs work with the State Coordinator of the Education for Homeless Children and Youth program. Members serve in CESAs around the state, both urban and rural, and support surrounding districts. VISTAs partner with school districts to begin mentoring programs for students experiencing homelessness to support their academic success.
