New Jersey Campus Compact (NJCC) is a University president's coalition that promotes community prosperity through purposeful civic engagement. By increasing civic engagement among the higher ed community, we strive to improve the health, education, and economies of communities across New Jersey. The strength of this higher ed-community partnership helps to decrease poverty levels in the communities where the college or university resides. The overarching goal of the NJCC communication VISTA is to raise awareness and visibility of NJCC programs and practices so as to deliver stronger community supports throughout the state of New Jersey. This is a New Jersey Campus Compact (NJCC) Statewide Collective Impact AmeriCorps VISTA Project. With our college and university partners, New Jersey Campus Compact is building a cohort of AmeriCorps VISTA members to support the anti-poverty work of 6 large-scale, cross-sector organizations focused on increasing education, economic opportunity, and healthy futures in NJ's underserved urban areas. We seek a qualified, civic-minded individual to be the AmeriCorps VISTA serving at the New Jersey Campus Compact.
