United Way of Weld County VISTA Leader
The VISTA Leader will be serving at the United Way of Weld County located in downtown Greeley, Colorado. Colorado is known as one of the sunniest states, with over 300 days of sunshine every year. The City of Greeley is situated in the Northeastern Front Range of Colorado and is experiencing rapid growth and development. Every year, Greeley is home to the “Greeley Stampede” Rodeo, the “Blues Jam” music festival, the Greeley Arts Picnic, and “Friday Fest” a free outdoor concert hosted weekly throughout the summer. The University of Northern Colorado is located in Greeley and neighborhoods around campus are a great place to live. United Way of Weld County is looking for a motivated and creative leader who has completed a year of AmeriCorps National Service or is a returned Peace Corps Volunteer to serve alongside a second VISTA Leader to develop and maintain a fun, engaging, and effective VISTA program. This is a great opportunity for someone seeking to develop program management, leadership, communication, and facilitation skills at an organization that loves its VISTA members! The VISTA team will facilitate a sense of shared mission among the VISTAs, create opportunities to share information and resources, assist with program evaluation, and offer ongoing support. Our ideal candidate is someone who will be innovative and people-oriented, have strong communication skills, and who seeks to empower others. COVID-19 NOTE: Evacuated Peace Corps volunteers that completed at least 50% of their service qualify for this position. If you served in AmeriCorps, but had to leave your term early for COVID related reasons and served 50% or more of your term, you also qualify for this leadership position.
