    Goodwill Columbus's Health & Wellness Department would like to help design and enjoy collaborative projects with any interested programs of study which would benefit from meaningful hands-on experiences with young adults and seniors with developmental disabilities. We use a very broad definition of wellness and know that improving the strength of our relationships will be the most powerful way to impact our wellness.

    "COSI Solar Eclipse Celebration" August 21st, Monday 12- 4 pm. COSI is celebrating the Solar Eclipse city wide. This is the first time in 40 years that the total eclipse has taken place directly above North America and it’s a great chance to educate our community. We need 40 volunteers to help us with easy science activities and to hand out glasses at 40 city wide sites at Columbus Metro Parks and Libraries. Two Volunteers will team up with a COSI associate at an assigned site. The activities are easy and geared toward children. Everyone will also get to see the Eclipse, weather permitting. Refreshments will be offered during the event. We are working with our partners for reserved parking at all of the locations. Volunteers will receive one General Admission pass along with one Family Friday Night pass. Both passes allow up to 8 family/friends to enter COSI admission free. The Family Friday Night pass is only good the last Friday of any month, but in addition to free admission, members would receive a free movie that night. I believe this would be a great opportunity for Grange Insurance Ambassadors. More details to follow.

    Jewish Family Services (JFS) conducts English language and job readiness training for refugees on the north side of Columbus. Our training program runs Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm, and volunteer schedules can be coordinated within those times. Specific volunteer duties may vary, but volunteers will mostly work with participants individually or in small groups to practice key concepts from the training program. This is a good opportunity for any students interested in refugee outreach, workforce development, and/or ESL instruction.

    An essential part of any community revitalization initiative is physical transformation. This physical transformation can come in many forms and in the case of PACT and our work on the Near East Side of Columbus, an essential part of our work is transforming the physical condition of existing housing stock. Additionally, as exteriors of homes fell into disrepair, they became less energy efficient resulting in higher utility costs for our residents with low and/or fixed incomes. The result is a neighborhood blanketed with physical blight and homeowners ill-equipped to independently complete desperately needed repairs to their home. As a result, PACT has introduced an exterior home repair program through which residents/homeowners of owner-occupied properties (renters and/or their landlords are not eligible for this program) can benefit from exterior home repairs at absolutely no cost to them. The VISTA member will provide the critically important administrative and project management support necessary to deliver this initiative with excellence. The VISTA member will partner with and support our Program Manager such that home owners experience a high-quality process, resulting in high levels of homeowner satisfaction, improved knowledge of what is required to maintain their home and financial benefit in the form of reduced utility costs.
