The goal of the Mission: St. Louis is to eradicate poverty through empowering low-income individuals to be leaders in their lives, families, and neighborhoods. We focus on our efforts within the city of St. Louis, where there is a 28.8% poverty rate. The Digital Content & Design VISTA member will build the capacity of Mission: St. Louis by effectively telling stories of life change through creative media communications for at least 200 low-income people in St. Louis, MO. As a result of the VISTA member’s service, impoverished individuals will increase their income/resources and have access to opportunity that will increase their chance of being economically self-sufficient and contributing to their success in life (breaking free of poverty). Applications are due January 22, 2021. Find more information here.
