Serve with Gallatin College to increase first generation, low income, rural high school students’ access to post-secondary education through dual credit courses. Dual credit is important because it provides a bridge to post-secondary education and creates an early, more successful path to college, training, or work based learning which can lead to a career and income security. As a VISTA you will use technology to remove barriers for students through the creation and implementation of an online dual enrollment orientation, registration process, and instructor training workshops. Apply to serve here!

Latenight Bus Attendants ride around with the bus driver on the Latenight Streamline and ensure the safety of the bus for both the passengers and the driver. Bus attendants make sure that no passenger gets too rowdy, that alcohol remains off the bus altogether, and ensures everyone is going to get where they are going. We want to get our passengers safely home and make sure that they are happy on the bus. If the situation arises, an attendant must also make sure to de-escalate a fight or call the police in case of a fight. Essentially, the attendant is the foremost authority on the bus who must ensure that the flow of the bus is not interrupted in anyway. This means being an enforcer, janitor, or just a friend depending on any given situation. Questions? asmsulatenight@montana.edu
