Arizona Food Bank Network VISTA Leader
 
 
 
With the abundance that our country has, no person should go hungry, which is why the Arizona Food Bank Network’s (AzFBN’s) vision is a hunger free AZ. AzFBN is a network of 5 member food banks, with their 1000 associated emergency food providers, that is a state-wide anti-hunger nonprofit who combats hunger through advocacy, innovation of new efficient ways to combat hunger, and supporting food banks and pantries to feed those in need. Throughout AzFBN’s network, there are organizations combating hunger in unique ways that depend on VISTAs to develop and implement impactful projects that serve the most vulnerable in the state. In order to ensure that AzFBN’s broader VISTA program and these individual projects are impactful and successful, AzFBN is recruiting a VISTA Leader to help manage its VISTA program. AzFBN has 12 different VISTA projects throughout the state with various host sites, and hopes to further expand their program to bring on new host sites and VISTA projects with the leadership of a VISTA Leader. In order to accomplish this, the Leader will need to increase the efficiency, efficacy, and scalability of AzFBN’s broader VISTA program. Additionally, the VISTA Leader will aid host site organizations and individual VISTA Members through a variety of different supports and interventions to ensure they have the resources, knowledge, skills and abilities required to be successful in their projects. The result of an effective VISTA Leader implementing this three pronged approach will be improved support systems for those struggling with hunger, resulting in a reduction in hunger in vulnerable populations throughout the state.

Member Duties : In order to increase the impact and capacity of AzFBN’s VISTA program, the VISTA Leader will support three primary groups: 1) AzFBN’s Project Director to expand the VISTA program to include additional host sites, recruit VISTAs, develop new partnerships and resources, implement a marketing plan to increase the visibility of the VISTA program, and improve program management by standardizing program operations. 2) VISTA Members, by offering integrated support from onboarding all the way through off-boarding by developing trainings, mentoring VISTAs, aiding VISTAs in program design and implementation, and forming a stronger VISTA network to stimulate collaboration between projects. 3) Host sites, by offering formal trainings, developing resources, expanding their partnerships, and aiding them in the transition of their project upon the departure of a VISTA, to ensure they implement impactful projects, and adequately support their VISTAs.
