Florida Keys Volunteer Center - Community Outreach VISTA
You will take on the important role of creating the brand new Florida Keys Volunteer Center. This unique opportunity will transform your resume into that of a superstar! You will be getting to know all kinds of people throughout our island chain as you recruit and retain volunteers as well as nonprofit partners to provide volunteer opportunities. A typical day will include meetings and presentations on the phone and in person, so this position is ideally suited for an extrovert who enjoys building relationships and helping people. You will also help build a coaching program to help Florida Keys nonprofits recruit, retain and maximize their effective use of volunteers. Joining our small team at the Community Foundation, you will be empowered to brainstorm ideas, make them happen and most of all enjoy a unique culture where we value having lots of fun while providing exceptional service for our nonprofit partners and island community. Your work will have a tremendous impact as the volunteer center will benefit thousands of individuals, families and organizations over the years to come. Note: the stipend you receive will not cover the cost of Key West housing, which will be your own responsibility, but you will experience a year of service that you will remember passionately for the rest of your life. We have two positions available so you could potentially share housing with a friend and work and play together in the beautiful Florida Keys! To learn more about the Florida Keys, visit
