*MTCC VISTA Leader with Montana Campus Compact
The Montana Campus Compact (MTCC) AmeriCorps VISTA Project (MTCC VISTA) is currently accepting applications for the MTCC VISTA Leader position. MTCC is located in Missoula, Montana. MTCC AmeriCorps VISTA members work with campuses and community-based organizations to promote civic engagement and increase resources for providing quality educational services to economically disadvantaged individuals and veterans. VISTAs build infrastructure to better position higher education to engage its resources in community needs. This work often incorporates community organizing, training, volunteer recruitment and community outreach. Ultimately, the VISTA Leader serves as a coach, mentor, liaison, ambassador and facilitator for MTCC VISTA members. MTCC AmeriCorps VISTAs serve with educational initiatives aimed at increasing graduation and college-going rates and post-secondary success to break the cycle of poverty. MTCC VISTAs raise funds to support programs and scholarships, create resource guides, databases and web sites to connect citizens with volunteer opportunities, promote service learning and campus based volunteerism, write grants to support community service projects and link campus volunteer centers with community needs. Applicants must successfully complete one VISTA service term before serving as a MTCC VISTA Leader.
