This position is part of a 10-member VISTA team operated out of Community Action of Skagit County. Our mission is to foster and advocate for self-sufficiency among low-income people in Skagit County. The Skagit VISTA team helps achieve Community Action’s goal of helping people help themselves and each other by building infrastructure and capacity for programs that serve economically disadvantaged individuals across the county. Our partner and host agency for this position is Community Action of Skagit County. Community Action has been serving the community for 40 years with a variety of services to assist persons with limited resources to achieve their personal goals. The mission of Community Action is to foster and advocate for self-sufficiency among low-income people in Skagit County. Our vision for Skagit County is a respectful community where everyone has the opportunity and support to be safe, healthy, and successful and that links directly to our goals for this project. Using coaching and motivational interviewing to train volunteers, we provide opportunities for community members to work on individual plans for their visions. We also partner with financial institutions and others to provide the content for budgeting and credit management classes. Skagit County is nestled halfway between Seattle, WA and Vancouver, BC and just east of the San Juan Islands offering access to the best of the Pacific Northwest. Fans of the outdoors will love our little corner of the world as hiking, kayaking, and biking are a small selection of the popular activities with locals and visitors alike. In addition, our team is composed of both locally grown VISTAs and those who have traveled from out of state. Often our VISTAs spend time together outside of service hours, building a strong support network. This position comes with a living stipend of $1,025 per month and an education award of $6,095 or $1800 end of year stipend after a completion of a year of service.
