Subject: [rtpnet-tact] RTPnet/VISTA projects -- Update

To TACT list:

I've updated the RTPnet/VISTA Web page
(http://www.rtpnet.org/rtpnet/vista.shtml ) to reflect the following changes
(it's been a LONG time since I updated this page). Please note that RTPnet
pays fees and expenses of about $4,500 for each VISTA -- that is, about 75
membership fees fund one VISTA.

Vahid Nourani (VISTA #8) <vahid at unitedwaytriangle.org>   AND
Damita Chambers (VISTA #9) <dchambers at unitedwaytriangle.org> are
scheduled to start as RTPnet VISTAs on September 2, 2004. Sponsored by
RTPnet and Triangle United Way. The goal of Vahid and Damita's project is to
monitor, coordinate, and promote the Tech LinkUp project
(http://www.techlinkup.org ) and provide support for TechCoop projects
(http://www.rtpnet.org/techcoop ).

Chad Custer (VISTA #7) <chad.custer at duke.edu>
will complete his year of service this month.
Chad continued the CLICK program (http://www.duke.edu/web/isis/click/ ) at
Rogers Herr Middle School and extended the work to Lyon's Park Community
Center. He designed a curriculum for its younger students. In addition,
several organizations across the nation are using CLICK's free 
downloadable materials for improving the skills of children after 
school. The project will continue in 2004-2005 as a CTC VISTA project 
sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center for Interdisciplinary & 
International Studies, Duke University.

Ella Holden (VISTA #5) <HoldenI at aol.com>.
Completed two years of service April 2004.
Jointly sponsored by the Riley Hill Community Technology Center and 
RTPnet. Ella's project provided technical support and training for the 
Riley Hill Community Technology Center.

Martha Ann Moore (VISTA #1) <margentamarty at yahoo.com>. Completed three
years of service February 2004. Sponsored by the Birchwood Heights
Homeowners Association and RTPnet. Martha's project promoted community
participation in the Birchwood Learning Center (BLC) in Durham. For the last
two years, she was the only staff person at the Birchwood Learning Center.
In partnership with John Avery Boys and Girls Club, she has run an
after-school program at Birchwood.

Martha's outstanding community technology leadership was acknowledged by a
Technology to Empower Communities (TEC) Champion Award for Outstanding
Community Technology Leaders.

In addition, Martha was a recipient of a RTPnet Community Technology Award,
presented at the RTPnet annual conference.
