Campus Compact of Oregon VISTA Equity Statement
We know that a college education is a critical tool to break the cycle of poverty and improve the health and welfare of low-income communities. Many low-income students lack the historical privilege and social capital to effectively navigate the college application and financial aid process. This becomes even more clear when you focus on low-income students of color who also face institutional racism and a growing educational opportunity gap. Campus Compact of Oregon is looking for motivated, energetic candidates who can use their passion for social justice, equity, and education to serve on our VISTA Team to empower Oregon’s low-income students, with a specific focus on students of color.
My service year has greatly impacted me personally. Through my service year I was able to see a new part of the country, meet new and amazing people, gain experience in higher education, learn more about volunteer management, and get a better understanding of my career goals.”
