The VL will serve as a critical bridge between members, supervisors, and the larger CRC AmeriCorps VISTA Program Team.

The National Service Program Team is one part of a robust, collaborative, and fast paced environment at CRC. CRC is seeking a champion of national service to serve as an advocate and leader for VISTAs serving in our program.
