Orange County United Way Workforce Solutions VISTA
There’s an amazing feeling that comes from helping others. The more we unite community resources to support Orange County United Way’s Fund, Advocate, Collaborate, and Educate (FACE) 2024 goals, the closer we come to ensuring that everyone in Orange County has access to a quality education, a sustainable income, good health and stable housing. As an AmeriCorps VISTA, you have the power to make a significant impact in the lives of others in our local community and advance Orange County United Way’s FACE 2024 Income goal: to reduce the percentage of financially unstable families in Orange County by another 25%. The Workforce Solutions VISTA will strengthen the capacity of UpSkill OC to provide the coaching and training low-income residents need to move from unemployment or low-wage positions into long-term, livable wage, middle-skill occupations. Orange County United Way employee culture values: compassion, relationships, enthusiasm, drive, and accountability. This is a great opportunity for someone to join a collaborative, supportive team, working intelligently, individually, and diligently. A successful Workforce Solutions VISTA candidate is flexible, highly self-motivated, detail-oriented, and emotionally intelligent with proven results. As a result of the Workforce Solutions VISTA’s efforts, Orange County United Way will better understand what best practices can be adopted to enhance program impact, and how to leverage Orange County United Way and community resources to better achieve our goals. Together with your help, we will transform the lives of unemployed and underemployed residents in Orange County.
