Achievement First is a public charter school network serving majority Black and Latinx students, preparing 100% of graduating seniors for a 4-year college degree. AmeriCorps VISTAs at AF have the opportunity to support incredible students in their journey through K-12 and beyond in Hartford, New Haven, Bridgeport, or Providence. There are five possibilities for service at our schools:

  1. The Student Life Coordinator works to bring joy to students by building a repertoire of school engagement activities. From after-school activities to movie screenings to speaker series, this Coordinator’s mission is to build school spirit and enrich the student experience.
  2. The Attendance Coordinator tackles chronic absenteeism. Working closely with families, teachers, advisors, and support staff, this Coordinator will design and implement intensive interventions to make sure students have the support and tools they need to join our classes.
  3. The Community Engagement Coordinator builds bridges between the school and the community. After-school programs, clubs, community service opportunities, extra academic tutoring, and parent engagement are just the tip of the iceberg for this role.
  4. The College Coordinator builds connections with colleges across the country. In this role, the Coordinator will connect students with impactful opportunities to learn about possibilities for life after Achievement First.
    The Network Support Coordinator focuses on student access to food services, transportation, and school recruitment opportunities, facilitating access to a great high school experience.

With dedicated staff, strong core values, and incredible results, Achievement First shows that amazing things can happen when potential meets opportunity. We look forward to welcoming new VISTAs who want to be innovative and have a big impact.
