Campus Compact - Hillside Middle School GEAR UP
The Northern New England Campus Compact VISTA Collaboration is a
full-time, post-graduate service opportunity program. VISTA members
serve with K-12 schools, colleges and universities across beautiful
Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont to build capacity in educational
institutions fighting poverty. This VISTA Program provides
high-impact professional development and training for our VISTA
members. Training addresses skills required to carry out the
assigned VISTA role, as well as skill-building that will be
valuable to the VISTA member in their future professional pursuits.
The program is a cohort-based experience that creates the
opportunity to learn from peers in the program, to share what is
learned in service, and to foster a supportive service year
community. Further help on this page can be found by clicking
