Clay County Schools

VISTA Activities:  Clay County School’s​ VISTAs will organize a parent and community volunteer program for each of our schools and for the county 21st CCLC (After School and Summer School Programs).  They will conduct research on best practices and establish the volunteer program guidelines.  They will develop the program at each location and will recruit and train volunteers from among our parents and community members. 

Anti-poverty outcomes:  Our VISTA members will have a tremendous opportunity to positively impact the lives of our students most of whom live in poverty.  Clay County Schools' poverty rate is over 70% and we are always in the bottom three counties for poverty from among WV’s 55 counties.  Our homeless rate is over 30% and among the highest rate in our state.  The VISTA members’ impact on disrupting poverty will be enhanced by their service with the school staff to understand children in trauma.
