To RTPnet members and friends:
I'm very pleased to say that:
Vahid Nourani (VISTA #8) <vahid at unitedwaytriangle.org> AND
Damita Chambers (VISTA #9) <dchambers at unitedwaytriangle.org>
started work yesterday (September 2, 2004) as RTPnet VISTAs,
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 ).
Please note that RTPnet pays fees and expenses of about $4,500 for each
VISTA -- that is, about 75 membership fees fund one VISTA.
Also, Chad Custer (VISTA #7) <chad.custer at duke.edu>
completed his year of service in August.
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.
I've updated the RTPnet/VISTA Web page
(http://www.rtpnet.org/rtpnet/vista.shtml ) to reflect these changes.
