ServiceWorks Project & Development (Volunteer Houston)
Join a team of AmeriCorps VISTA members to support an innovative training program for young adults ages 16-24, living in low-income communities. Through professional skills workshops and academic trainings, youth participants will learn valuable 21st century work skills and gain an understanding of important community issues. As a VISTA in this exciting program, you will have the opportunity to shape programs that support youth on their path to reaching long-term school and career goals and improving their communities. VISTAs will build community volunteer capacity to expand anti-poverty services and programs available to youth. This program is a partnership between AmeriCorps, Points of Light and Citi Foundation.
