Description

Maine Campus Compact (MCC) is a statewide coalition of colleges and universities whose purpose is to further the public purposes and civic mission of higher education. MCC’s team of 10 VISTAs will develop programming that mobilizes college students to increase college aspirations in Maine’s K-12 youth with an emphasis on low-income students. The Hunger Dialogue is part of a national movement to raise awareness about hunger on campuses, in Maine communities and beyond Maine’s borders and hunger’s impact on low-income individuals. The Hunger Dialogue VISTA will help to raise awareness and mobilize colleges throughout Maine to address hunger for low income individuals and to provide a platform for Maine students to address food insecurity on their campuses and in their communities. Recognizing the connection between hunger and low college retention rates, a special emphasis will be placed on initiatives that address links between food insecurity, college access and low retention rates on Maine campuses. Specific duties include program outreach, recruitment of campus teams, technical assistance support to campus teams, help with the process to analyze statewide surveys on issues related to food insecurity and college retention in Maine and conference planning.
