Position Title: Early Learning Coalition Connection VISTA
The SPPS Office of Early Learning specifically works to ensure lasting achievement for all early learners. Our Early Learning Coalitions aid in this effort by collaborating with residents and organizations within communities for the benefit of families with young children.
SPPS OEL is working collaboratively with Mayor Carter’s City of Saint Paul VISTA Program—which brings together organizations serving children from birth to three and their families to build “a Saint Paul that works for all of us”—including our youngest residents
The ELC Connection VISTA will assist in increasing resident participation and voice in current ELCs, while also supporting sustainability across all ELCs.
