HandsOn Americorps VISTA
We are proud to manage a team of AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) members. These individuals dedicate a year of their lives to serve full-time in nonprofits and government agencies.
During their terms of service, VISTAs build the capacity of organizations established to alleviate poverty by developing sustainable programs in fundraising, volunteer coordination, and project management. AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a poverty-level stipend to better understand the lives of the clients they serve.
Apply now and join our team! We're recruiting for VISTA members to begin service in August with the host site organizations listed below! The HandsOn VISTA program supports nineteen VISTA members serving in the role of volunteer or program coordinators at multiple sites and in doing so, hopes to infuse volunteer management competency into the community. Members will enable our community service partners to build lasting infrastructure by creating the processes and tools needed to effectively access and utilize valuable volunteer resources. At the same time, more opportunities will be created for community members to engage in meaningful service to under-resourced communities. Members will also improve their capacity for leading their communities during and beyond their terms of service by developing their knowledge, skills and abilities related to volunteer mobilization and civic engagement through additional training and professional development.
