AmeriCorps VIP Fellow - Sacramento & Marin County
The Volunteer Infrastructure Project (VIP) strengthens nonprofits to increase impact through the power of volunteers. This AmeriCorps term lasts from February - August 2020. Our AmeriCorps members are called VIP Fellows, and they are leaders who build sustainable volunteer programs at nonprofits. Nonprofits that have strong volunteer programs are able to serve more clients and tackle more of our communities’ challenges. VIP Fellows join a nonprofit team and help them build systems that recruit, train, support, manage, and measure the success of volunteers. Each VIP Fellow is placed at a participating nonprofit, and collaborates with that organization’s professional staff to build or strengthen volunteer management systems. VIP Fellows are members of a statewide network of 120 Fellows, and are key contributors of a local cohort of Bay Area and Sacramento Fellows that meet regularly for collaboration and training. Over the course of the service term, VIP Fellows earn a Certificate in Volunteer Management, and become experienced in community outreach, volunteer management, nonprofit operations, partnership building, and professional communication. The VIP Fellow team in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento is managed by the Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL). Come join the team, and make an impact this year!
