The position offers an exciting opportunity to gain rich experience and responsibility, while also providing the ability to network and connect in a unique way that will enhance your service. Ideal candidates will possess the desire and proficiency to help create and deliver sustainable, high-impact professional development and training opportunities for our VISTA members. Training will address competencies required to perform the assigned VISTA role, as well as valuable skills related to future professional pursuits. Our AmeriCorps project is a cohort-based experience that creates the opportunity to learn from peers in the program, to share best practices, and to foster a supportive service year community. Applicants MUST have previous Federal service experience, such as, a full-year of AmeriCorps service and/or a full Peace Corps term.
