Each year PHENND places 20 AmeriCorps VISTA members (full-time federally funded volunteers) in high-poverty public schools in Philadelphia and in key School District offices to serve as Community Partnership Coordinators. The overall goal is to increase the capacity of Philadelphia schools to leverage community partnerships to better align their resources to the needs of students and families.
Some of the VISTAs’ activities include needs assessment, convening monthly community partner stakeholder meetings, the creation and/or improvement of the schools’ websites, newsletters and other social media platforms, and meeting regularly with the School Leadership team to discuss school needs and create a community partnership action plan.
