Harvest VISTA Leader- Engagement and Recruitment Coordinator
***In order to be considered for this VISTA Leader position, you must have completed a full term of service as either an AmeriCorps, VISTA, NCCC, or Peace Corps volunteer (we will make an exception for volunteers whose service term ended early due to COVID-19 and completed at least 50% of their term of service). Harvest Against Hunger is a Seattle-based nonprofit that tackles food insecurity across the country. The Harvest VISTA Program places AmeriCorps members at local hunger relief agencies in 4 states (currently WA, MA, GA and UT) where they create systems for produce collection, volunteer recruitment, gleaning and gardening. By design, specific activities vary by location to meet community needs and available resources. Harvest VISTAs develop relationships with local growers, recruit new volunteers, build effective transportation networks and identify necessary resources to make these new programs successful and sustainable. Harvest VISTA Leaders are detail- and community-oriented mentors who coordinate the Harvest VISTA Program. They use their previous experience as a VISTA, AmeriCorps, NCCC, or Peace Corps member to support members, collect data, creatively generate resources, take initiative and collaborate with the Harvest VISTA team.
