The MCSC Youth Resource VISTA Initiative will positively impact communities by reaching the following project goals: 1) Develop mechanisms for youth, parents, and youth serving organizations to access resources that enhance the skill sets of youth and assist them with being successful in school and/or work. 2) Assist with developing solutions to decrease the opportunity gaps faced by youth and in particular young men and women of color. These goals will be accomplished through objectives that include: asset and resource coordination; recruiting and engaging volunteers; establishing a youth voice in the communities; promoting easier access to work and career opportunities. Michigan Community Service Commission utilizes service as a strategy to address the state's most pressing issues and empowers volunteers to strengthen communities.
