Flagstaff STEM Education Project

| July 5, 2017

By Flagstaff STEM City

FLAGSTAFF — The first year of the Flagstaff STEM Education Project with NAU’s Civic Service Institute is drawing to a close. The 15 VISTAs (Volunteers in Service to America) have served at many educational institutions and non-profits in Flagstaff. We want to celebrate their many accomplishments, including:

  • 15 VISTAs served full-time for an entire year at poverty wages in our community
  • VISTAs recruited 350 new volunteers for their mentor organizations
  • Volunteers managed by VISTA members performed over 4,000 hours of service in our community
  • VISTA members wrote grant proposals resulting in over $55,000 in funding for our community

For Year 2 of this Project, we have two returning VISTAs and have connected many new VISTAs with their mentor sites for the coming year.  We are still advertising for several key positions here. Please distribute this information widely so we get more great candidates! Thank you!
