International Institute - Outreach & Data VISTA - FT
The Outreach and Data Management VISTA Member will support the integration of new Americans by updating and expanding an online database of nonprofit organizations. New Americans are currently living in poverty rates of 18.5% across MO, and 15.9% in the St. Louis Metro. This website is an outreach tool to connect providers and the foreign-born to key services targeted to lift new Americans out of poverty. These services include, but are not limited to, job placement, job training, entrepreneur resources, and ESOL classes. The Member will outreach to Missouri organizations to develop listings that promote their services. Additionally, the Member will network with national groups to promote services in Missouri.

We strive to serve all immigrants without regard to country of origin, race or religion. We believe that America becomes even stronger when we embrace new cultures and traditions. Our purpose is also to create a more welcoming community and shared prosperity for all residents.
