Service Storytelling VISTA Leader, Spokane County United Way
This project is supervised by Spokane County United Way (SCUW), which aims to provide safe homes free of child abuse, neglect, and domestic violence; increase high school graduation rates for every student in our community; and prevent hunger and homelessness in Spokane through partnership and collaboration. SCUW has been an intermediary sponsor for the AmeriCorps VISTA Program since 2014 and supports up to 14 projects focused on health, education, and economic opportunity throughout Spokane County. The goal of this project is to build the capacity of SCUW’s VISTA Program by developing resources and infrastructure to capture, curate, and distribute the stories of VISTA members, their projects, their host sites, and their impact in the community. We believe that by building our potential to tell these stories, we will be better able to foster a culture of service within our community, expanding the program’s ability to fight poverty in Spokane County. This position is in Spokane, in Eastern Washington, about 20 miles west of Idaho and 110 miles south of the Canadian border. Benefits include $667 biweekly living allowance. VISTA Leaders who successfully complete the year receive their choice of either a Segal Education Award (valued at approximately $6,195) or a $3,000 cash stipend. AmeriCorps VISTA is the only AmeriCorps program where you can earn federal non-competitive eligibility, giving you an edge in the federal hiring process. All members in our program receive access to the CliftonStrengths assessment as a benefit of service and join a cohort of VISTA members throughout Spokane in professional and personal development opportunities. Additionally, the VISTA Leader at United Way will receive mileage reimbursement or a bus pass for all service-related travel.
