STEM City Sustainable Project Evaluator VISTA
Northern Arizona University Center for Service and Volunteerism
About the organization
The Center for Service and Volunteerism (CSV) at Northern Arizona University aspires to be a leader in the field of service and volunteerism by supporting a vibrant and diverse network of individuals and partner agencies who are making an exceptional impact throughout Arizona supporting direct service, capacity building, professional development, and innovation.
STEM City was born out of a shared community vision to recognize, celebrate and expand the tremendous human and capital assets in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) that exist in Flagstaff. We connect the vibrancy of Flagstaff’s STEM businesses, organizations and resources to our schools, students and families to strengthen our education, economy and environment. We employ our passion for STEM to empower and create real, meaningful impact for all the citizens of Flagstaff.
Goal of the Overall VISTA Project: VISTA will evaluate projects and sustainability
documentation for STEM City. STEM City programs include strong partnerships with
schools and community organizations who serve low-income community members. We
bring opportunities to various Title I schools in northern Arizona who have high numbers
of students living on the Navajo and Hopi Nation. The VISTA will connect STEM
Educators to various schools as a tool to alleviate poverty through instruction and
activities. The VISTA ensure that STEM community partnerships are available and are
effective at reaching all community members, especially those living in poverty. VISTA
will research and document the effectiveness of these programs and develop
sustainable practices for the future.
