New VISTA Leader Hits the Ground Running

picAmeriCorps VISTA Leader Jessica Platt has felt very welcomed since she has started with the VISTA North Texas Project team. She is learning about the organization and the mission of the project. Jessica is getting familiar with her VISTA Leader duties, meeting the VISTA cohort, and getting familiar with the culture of the overall North Texas Project. She is very thankful for her supervisor and the other VISTA leader in their efforts in making her transition smooth. With the addition of a second VISTA Leader, the North Texas Project will have a greater capacity to launch its first Summer VISTA Associate program with City of Denton Parks and Recreation. This project will have 2 separate programs with 3 individual start dates, and will house a maximum of 29 Summer VISTAs. The work Jessica is putting in towards recruitment and outreach will ensure the project’s first Summer VISTA Associate program will be a huge success!
