Member Duties : The Volunteer & Corporate Engagement VISTA will update our volunteer onboarding processes with two key goals in mind: to increase % of volunteer applicants who successfully onboard, and importantly, to reduce the large administrative burden on CIS staff. The VISTA will create a more streamlined, automated, and digitally-driven process. In terms of the corporate engagement strategy, this VISTA will give us the capacity to conduct extensive research develop new program infrastructure, guidelines and performance metrics. Once that structure is developed, the program will be run through an inter-departmental collaboration, with the following roles: Community Outreach Specialist (corporate volunteer opportunities & engagement), members of the Development department (corporate recruitment into the program), Sr. Director of Communications (corporate recognition), and a future CIS “Success in Life” department (connecting students to job shadowing and internship opportunities).
