What's a Priority
VISTA Project basics for 2005-06
provide that all organizations applying to the project
develop a workplan that has at least one goal that addresses
one of the project's four priority areas and that the
project will develop resources in one of four areas, including
digital media with youth.
What is the
Priority Area Coordinator's role?
The coordinator will provide support to
priority area projects in their field and contribute to
the development of training resources and curriculum materials.
The coordinator will
- Establish and moderate a discussion
list, blog, or other group interaction with project
VISTAs and Supervisors and project staff, and provide
individual and group support and advice for the implementation
of area workplan objectives.
- Contribute substantively to the development
of training modules and curriculum resources
in their area of expertise and assist the curriculum
developer with the preparation of curriculum materials
to be disseminated.
- Assist the College
of Public and Community Service in its student recruitment
efforts by identifying VISTAs and other area personnel
who might benefit from the college's certificate and
degree programs in Community
Media and Technology.
