Brown University Beat the Streets Impact Evaluation VISTA

The Brown University AmeriCorps VISTA Fellowship is a full-time, post-graduate service opportunity hosted through the Swearer Center at Brown University. Founded by Brown University President, Howard R. Swearer, The Swearer Center for Public Service is a community of scholars, students, practitioners, and community members that work together to build on community strengths and address community challenges. Through the creative capacities of our students, faculty, and community partners we explore, build, and implement collaborative and strategic projects, programs, and initiatives. Our work yields transformative learning and positive sustainable change through collective action. VISTA fellows apply for a VISTA position with a local partner organization, state agency, or Swearer Center department to build capacity in organizations fighting poverty. These agencies work in the education, health, arts and/or economic justice sector. Current external VISTA fellow placement sites include: Beat the Streets Providence, Breakthrough Providence, House of Hope Community Development Corporation, Inspiring Minds, Providence After School Alliance, Social Enterprise Greenhouse, and Youth In Action. Beat the Streets Providence (BTSP) seeks to create a model for bringing middle school sports back to every school in Providence and eventually to every school in Rhode Island. BTSP is a local non-profit committed to inspiring urban youth for success in school and life through the vehicle of co-educational wrestling. We use our program as a hook to draw at-risk students into a positive after-school environment, where they receive mandatory academic support, connect to strong mentors, engage in healthy physical activity, learn about nutrition and general health, and incentives to attend and succeed in school. You do not need to have prior wrestling experience to excel in this VISTA role. Further help on this page can be found by clicking here.

Member Duties : The Beat the Streets Providence (BTSP) Impact Evaluation Coordinator VISTA member will research and assess opportunities for BTSP to expand its after-school wrestling programming to serve more at risk youth, create new partnerships with community based organizations, and access new sources of funding to improve organizational efficiency and effectiveness. The VISTA will identify opportunities for BTSP to receive funding support in the form of foundational grants, public funding, strategic partnerships, and business sponsorship based on our impact metrics. The VISTA will also ensure data collection and submission from coaches is completed in a timely manner and in accordance with the strategic plan created by the BTSP's previous AmeriCorps VISTA.
