ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Maryland Out of School Time Network

MOST Network proudly serves as a statewide intermediary sponsor for AmeriCorps VISTA projects, supporting more and better out of school time (OST) programs for Maryland youth.

MOST VISTAs are full-time, paid national service members, who serve with an organization for a one-year project term. VISTAs find creative and lasting solutions to build capacity for OST and youth development organizations.

Having served the region for nearly a decade, our AmeriCorps VISTA program members serve as a catalyst for change, living and working alongside community members to advance local solutions.

Program Goals:
  • Inspire the future STEM workforce by engaging youth in high quality STEM learning opportunities.​
  • Support summer programming to combat learning loss and provide healthy, enriching activities for students. ​
  • Launch innovative projects that expand access, improve quality, facilitate collaboration, and create new initiatives for OST programs statewide.​
  • Develop a diverse, equity-centered workforce to strengthen the capacity of the youth development field to meet the needs of communities impacted by poverty.
