OneStar Foundation Statewide Intermediary VISTA Leader
Do you love breakfast tacos and live music? How about kayaking, tubing, BBQ and food trucks? OneStar Foundation (OneStar), located in sunny Austin, Texas is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to strengthen the capacity of the nonprofit infrastructure to enable communities to more effectively solve social challenges. As part of this mission, OneStar established the OneStar Foundation Statewide VISTA Intermediary Program in 2014. After launching with 3 members at 2 host sites in August 2014, OneStar anticipates sponsoring 30 members at 17 host sites across Texas by August 2016. These VISTAs are fighting poverty through their service in Disaster Services, Economic Opportunity, Education, and Healthy Futures. OneStar is seeking an AmeriCorps VISTA Leader to provide leadership, peer development, and training to OneStar VISTA members across Texas. Since this Statewide VISTA Intermediary Project is still new and growing rapidly, the OneStar VISTA Leader will have the opportunity to play a key leadership role in program development and helping members build a lifelong connection to service. **Note: you must have at least one year previous AmeriCorps or AmeriCorps VISTA experience to apply as a VISTA Leader**
