									                           2009-2010 NC Campus Compact VISTA Calendar

NC Campus Compact Mission: North Carolina Campus Compact is a coalition of colleges and universities
collaborating to increase campus-wide participation in community and public service. Presidents and chancellors commit
their institutions to join with other schools in becoming “engaged campuses” that enhance students’ sense of
responsibility, citizenship, leadership and awareness of community, while reinvigorating higher education’s concern for
improving the quality of life in North Carolina.

VISTA Objectives: NC Campus Compact AmeriCorps*VISTAs work with students, staff, faculty, and community
partners to alleviate poverty. These efforts are focused on mobilizing volunteers in the event of a natural disaster,
increase community and public service, and address human needs by partnering member campuses with the community.

Purpose of VISTA Training: To prepare NC Campus Compact VISTAs to accomplish the objectives, NC Campus
Compact facilitates trainings though out the VISTA year of service. During the trainings VISTAs will network and learn
the technical skills to accomplish the objectives.
