Brown University AmeriCorps VISTA Fellowship
The Brown University AmeriCorps VISTA Fellowship is a full-time service opportunity hosted through the Swearer Center at Brown University. Founded by Brown University President, Howard R. Swearer, The Swearer Center for Public Service is a community of scholars, students, practitioners, and community members that work together to build on community strengths and address community challenges. Through the creative capacities of our students, faculty, and community partners we explore, build, and implement collaborative and strategic projects, programs, and initiatives. Our work yields transformative learning and positive sustainable change through collective action. Interested applicants apply for a VISTA position at a local partner organization, state agency, or Swearer Center department to build capacity in organizations fighting poverty. These agencies work in the education, health, arts and/or economic justice sector. Current external Brown University AmeriCorps VISTA placement sites include: Beat the Streets Providence, Breakthrough Providence, House of Hope Community Development Corporation, Inspiring Minds, Providence After School Alliance, Providence Public Library, Social Enterprise Greenhouse, and Youth In Action. Our program provides high-impact professional development and training that enhances our VISTA members' personal and professional skills. VISTA member trainings will include role-specific support in research/data and building community partnerships while also learning valuable skills in cultural humility and career planning. This AmeriCorps VISTA opportunity is team-focused and provides a variety of resources to help the VISTA member succeed personally and professionally. Other benefits for all Brown University AmeriCorps VISTA members include access to campus lectures and library resource workshops. Our aim is to help you make the most of your service year experience for personal and professional development.
