5 Ways VISTA Leaders Support Members and Projects

Thursday, November 12, 2020
2:00 – 3:00 pm ET

The role of the VISTA leader is somewhere between that of a regular VISTA member and a VISTA supervisor, which sometimes leads to misunderstandings – by members, others on the project, and even by leaders themselves. This webinar aims to clear up questions by offering VISTA supervisors and leaders specifics on appropriate ways VISTA leaders can provide support to the VISTA project and members. 

Participants will be able to:
• Describe appropriate ways VISTA leaders can support their members and project
• Identify tasks that are outside the scope of the VISTA leader role
• Identify additional ways they can be involved in supporting their project

NOTE:  This webinar is for VISTA supervisors and leaders.

Participants will be able to:

  • describe the complexities and challenges that come along with working with site supervisors
