We convene cross-sector partners to make an impact on the most complex problems in the heart of Appalachia. Through collaboration with government, business, nonprofit and individuals, we innovate for positive, lasting social change across a footprint that covers almost 15% of the state of Virginia: Bland, Buchanan, Carroll, Dickenson, Giles, Grayson, Lee, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington and Wise counties, and the cities of Galax and Norton.United Way of Southwest Virginia is proud to employ dedicated, skilled professionals from a variety of backgrounds. We foster an inclusive, supportive, and fun work environment for all of our team members.This VISTA project will serve our Ignite program, which sparks career interest in the next generation of Southwest Virginia's workforce through career awareness and hands-on learning. The program addresses poverty by bridging the gap between the worlds of learning and work by connecting schools and employers. With the Ignite program team, the VISTA member will grow relationships with 86 schools and 100 businesses, building capacity with educational partners and employers to refine curriculum and credentialing, develop internships, and create project-based learning and presentations to facilitate successful transitions from the classroom into high demand, high wage local careers.
