Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Operations VISTA, OneStar

About the organization

The mission of the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation (BBHLF) is to improve lives through the power of literacy. Since 2013, we have been serving as a champion for the literacy cause across the Greater Houston Area, playing several vital roles: (1) increasing awareness of the literacy crisis in our city and elevating literacy as a priority for our city; (2) mobilizing volunteers to expand the capacity of evidence-based literacy programs through meaningful activities and events; (3) serving as a thought leader across the community and convening cross-sector stakeholders; and (4) investing in creation of new or expanding existing literacy programs and services through strategic partnerships and financial investments. The population served by this project will be predominately economically disadvantaged elementary and preschool-aged children and their families in the Greater Houston Area. Houston is our nation’s fourth largest and most diverse city.


The Operations VISTA will design a sustainable infrastructure supporting Foundation operations and the use of logistics (industry best practices and procedures) to ensure timely and effective delivery of program deliverables and results. Develop project plans and reporting templates. The VISTA member will develop calendar and scheduling tools to support the acquisition, provision and deployment of Foundation resources. Create evaluations of operational efficiencies and assist with facilitating feedback from internal and external stakeholders. The VISTA will implement change management practices based on feedback for optimization in resource management and to maximize results of Foundation programs.
