The Afterschool Alliance, in partnership with the STEM Funders Network (SFN) and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), is excited to announce a call for proposals for a national AmeriCorps STEM Ecosystems VISTA program. Cohort 1 and 2 STEM Ecosystems are each eligible to apply to host up to two AmeriCorps VISTA members. There are currently 8 open VISTA slots, which will be filled on a first come, first served basis. The VISTAs will focus on building capacity to increase access to STEM education in afterschool and summer learning programs that are connected and coordinated with K-12 schools and districts.
All informational materials and application documents can be found on the new internal Community of Practice website, as well as, attached herein.
Applications are are due to Alexis Steines at Afterschool Alliance by January 27, 2017. Additionally, Alexis is available to talk with any interested Ecosystem to answer questions and assist with the process.
Thank you and please let us know if you have any questions.
