UCM Center Social Justice VISTA with Rural Action
 
 
 
Appalachian Ohio is rich with assets--assets like our people, our land, and unwavering sense of self-reliance. Our region is also ripe for industry that builds on these assets while supporting the environment and the communities who call it home. As the UCM Social Justice VISTA, you can help us harness these assets and mobilize them for a more sustainable, more successful small business economy. The Social Justice VISTA will join UCM staff at the UCM Center in Athens, Ohio, serving alongside staff, interns, and volunteers.

Tasks include raising awareness of UCM events and outreach efforts via social media and other promotional efforts and recruiting, managing, and celebrating volunteers to incubate community improvement, and to provide necessary programming for low-income students.
