Since Campus Compact began working with MCAN, we at Campus Compact have done a number of things to directly support this work:
1) We've provided AmeriCorps VISTAs to support MCAN's statewide work. Both Molly Wilkins and Amber Rhodes served from Helena, with MCAN helping to build capacity for MCAN, which as of today is official 501C3.
2) We've supported the Local College Access work that Montana Tech and Bitterroot College have undertaken with VISTAs like Cody LaBean and Kate Johnson.
3) We've placed VISTA Summer Associates with TRiO Upward Bound programs, like that at the University of Montana.
And finally, last fall we launched an AmeriCorps state program with the support of the Montana office of Community Service. This program currently has leaders serving with Dawson Community College, MSU Northern, Montana Tech and Bitterroot College. And we currently are recruiting for positions in Great Falls, Billings and in Crow Agency. We're proud of the work Campus Compact has done in the college access and success space, and are happy to answer questions and lend a hand if you're interested in partnering. Email or call me (406-243-5175), don't hesitate.
