Help Michigan College Access Network and the Michigan Promise Zones Association serve the under-resourced communities in Michigan's eleven Promise Zones.

The Michigan Promise Zones were created through state legislation enacted in 2009, and were designed to replicate the ground-breaking example of the Kalamazoo Promise, the nation's first universal place-based scholarship program. Eleven Promise Zones now exist in the state of Michigan, and all eligible high school graduates from these areas are guaranteed a tuition-free path to a college degree, increasing educational attainment and spurring economic growth. As our VISTA serving with the Michigan College Access Network (MCAN) and the Michigan Promise Zones Association (MPZA), you will create an urgency for postsecondary access across the state, with a particular focus on under-resourced communities served by Promise Zones. Your efforts would strengthen both organizations’ efforts state-wide, and you would identify and address the needs of these communities in relation to post-secondary success. You would also harness the power of data to increase the ability of both organizations to disseminate information across Michigan. MPZA is a key element of MCAN's commitment to helping Michigan achieve 60% educational attainment by 2025, and your efforts will help ensure that students in Promise Zone communities are receiving the support they need to thrive.

• Develop, pilot, and revise database, internal, and external knowledge management systems.

• Support professional development and training around data for MCAN partners, such as LCANs, CEACS, and high schools through in-person and web-based training.

• Create user and process guides to allow organizations to operationalize their systems.

• Assess and map out the needs of each MPZA site.

• Build the capacity of MCAN departments and MPZA in accessing, visualizing, and disseminating data.
