Ending Hunger Corps – Workforce Ready Grant VISTA
 
 
 
Are you interested in grant writing, and want to make a difference? The Alfond Youth & Community Center (AYCC) is looking for an impassioned individual to join our team as the Workforce Ready Grant VISTA. As a part of our team, you will collect and analyze data on current community needs, research funding opportunities, and write grants that are focused on childcare, workforce readiness, and resource management, and opportunity. The AYCC serves more than 8,000 children and families from 191 communities in central Maine. Created by the Waterville Boys & Girls Club, the Waterville YMCA, and the City of Waterville in 1997, the AYCC stands as the only successful collaboration of a Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA) and YMCA in the United States. Currently AYCC is an approved CACFP sponsor to 3 afterschool sites in Waterville and 1 in Oakland, Skowhegan, Norridgewock, and Benton, with additional summer programs. Throughout the year AYCC also sponsors free holiday meal events for the community and during COVID AYCC gave out over 85,000 meals. AYCC also has a Farm to School grant that is focused on the development of a Garden to Table educational curriculum. As the Workforce Ready Grant VISTA, you will also be a part of a VISTA cohort that spans the state of Maine: Ending Hunger Corps, a 25-member cohort model VISTA program sponsored by Maine's Department of Agriculture, Conservation, Forestry (DACF). Ending Hunger Corps contributes to Maine’s historic goal of ending hunger in the state by 2030. Find out more here: https://www.maine.gov/dacf/about/commissioners/endhunger/
