In January, TORCH hired Lisa Gaetjens to work part-time as a Postsecondary Specialist. Lisa will be working to support alumni during their college careers and helping seniors make the transition to life after high school. She will also be coordinating the Riverland PSEO program and communicating with Spanish-speaking families.
Great news! Starting in August, TORCH will have a full-time AmeriCorps VISTA worker on site! The VISTA worker will help students to enroll in college courses and find financial aid as well as working with families and local organizations to improve TORCH services. We’re very excited to welcome this new member to our team! Go here to apply to be the TORCH AmeriCorps VISTA worker.
