Developing Services for Virginia's School-age Children and Youth

VPOST, the Virginia Partnership for Out-of-School-Time, is a statewide  public-private partnership dedicated to developing and expanding academic, social, emotional, and physical supports and services to school-age children and youth across the Commonwealth of Virginia during the out-of-school time hours – before-school, after-school, vacation periods, and summer. V-post.org is the official website of the Virginia Partnership for Out-of-School-Time.

 

Position Announcement

The Virginia Partnership for Out-of-School Time (VPOST), in partnership with the Afterschool Alliance, seeks an AmeriCorps VISTA to assist in sustainability outreach for programs in Virginia.

The Afterschool Alliance and the Virginia Partnership for Out-of-School Time want all children to have access to affordable high quality afterschool and summer programs. High quality afterschool programs have shown to increase student academic performance, behavioral improvements and have been a factor in supporting regular school attendance. The 21st Century Community Learning Centers programs provide competitive funding for school community partnerships in schools serving low income children. Initial funding is provided for a time limited period. To keep this resource operating for students and their families in their community, a community engagement and sustainability process is needed. Parents, teachers, principals and other education leaders, neighborhood and community leaders and supportive businesses and organizations have an important role in supporting these programs.
