Harvest VISTA Leader - Communications & Outreach Coordinator
***In order to be considered for this VISTA Leader position, you must have completed a full term of service as either an AmeriCorps, VISTA, NCCC, or Peace Corps volunteer (we will make an exception for volunteers whose service term ended early due to COVID-19 and completed at least 50% of their term of service). Harvest Against Hunger is a Seattle-based nonprofit that tackles food insecurity across the country and hosts the Harvest VISTA program, an AmeriCorps Cohort. The Harvest VISTA Program places AmeriCorps members at local hunger relief agencies in a variety of states (currently GA, MA, OR, UT, VT, & WA) where they create systems for produce collection, volunteer recruitment, gleaning, and gardening. By design, specific activities vary by location to meet community needs and available resources. The AmeriCorps members develop relationships with local growers, recruit new volunteers, build effective transportation networks, and identify necessary resources to make these new programs successful and sustainable. Harvest VISTA Leaders are detail-oriented and community building centric mentors, who coordinate the Harvest VISTA Program. They use their previous experience within their AmeriCorps or Peace Corps service terms to support members, collect data, creatively generate resources, take initiative and collaborate with the Harvest VISTA team.
