RurAL CAP Communications VISTA
RurAL CAP is a statewide, nonprofit organization working to improve the quality of life for low-income Alaskans. Operating with a deep respect for all people, our programs in housing, early childhood education, and health and well-being serve to alleviate the root causes of poverty. A VISTA member will facilitate the mission of RurAL CAP through communications and community outreach activities that raise awareness of issues faced by low-income Alaskans and reduces poverty by improving access to services and resources that contribute to the improved economic well-being of economically disadvantaged Alaskans. The VISTA will serve through the agency’s communications team which engages in organizational outreach, messaging, and internal capacity building work.
