Harris County Department of Education (HCDE) was established in 1889 by the Texas legislature to equalize educational opportunities for children in the greater Houston area. Throughout its history, HCDE's programs have evolved to meet the changing needs of students and educators. Working with local school districts, charter schools, afterschool providers, and nonprofit organizations, CASE for Kids provides funding, training, and resources to the out-of-school time (OST) community, the Center for Afterschool, Summer and Expanded Learning (CASE for Kids), is a division dedicated to supporting high quality (OST) programming to over 7,000 students each year. The time is now to create solutions for Houston’s at-risk youth to have a brighter future. We are seeking a highly organized, energetic, multi-tasking person to join our team and assist us in developing an outreach plan to share our services with the community. This VISTA will identify and secure caring individuals to serve as volunteers in our afterschool programs, at our special events, and in our office.
