We are honored to announce that TechPoint Foundation for Youth has been named this year's Indiana VISTA Program of Distinction! Louis Lopez, State Program Director for the Corporation for National & Community Service, presented us with the award at the April 23rd US2020 Guiding Coalition meeting in front of more than thirty of our US2020 partners.
"TechPoint Foundation has distinguished itself among the best of Indiana's AmeriCorps VISTA programs as a leader in carrying out the important work of the White House-supported US2020 initiative," Lopez said. "The Foundation has demonstrated excellence as one of the first out of seven US2020 cities selected nationally to engage three outstanding VISTA members in implementing the critical mission of connecting STEM professionals to STEM mentoring opportunities."
This has been the first year that TPF4Y has hosted AmeriCorps VISTA members as part of our work on the US2020 initiative in the city of Indianapolis. Our three current VISTAs are smart, resourceful, and hardworking self-starters and we are beyond grateful for their tireless work during the pilot year of this initiative. We will be welcoming two new VISTAs to our team this summer, and while we have already selected a candidate for our School & Program Coordinator position, we are still recruiting to fill the Corporate & Community Coordinator position! If you know of anyone who might be interested in filling this role and gaining a year's worth of excellent experience, please send them our way!
