Arizona Refugee Resettlement Program Faith Based
 
 
 
The Arizona Refugee Resettlement Program is recruiting for an assignment that will begin in Phoenix from July 2014 through July 2015. During this time, the VISTA member will develop relationships with faith based community partners to help welcome refugees into Arizona. The VISTA member will help faith organizations understand the ways they may provide meaningful assistance to refugees. The VISTA member will also work to develop pathways the faith organizations may learn more about refugees and connect to resettlement agencies and ethnic community based organizations. Because of the high travel needs for this assignment, it is recommended that the selected candidate own a car. Mileage incurred during work hours of the assignment will be reimbursed. This assignment will be best served by a candidate who has excellent community outreach techniques, strong written and verbal communications skills, program development experience, an intercultural awareness and an interest in developing solutions that will benefit refugees as they resettle into their new country. Other language skills are a plus. If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of Arizona's refugees, please apply today. We will select the candidate by May 26, 2014.
