Skagit VISTA - Volunteer and Apprenticeship Coordinator
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 the Friendship House. Friendship House provides comprehensive services and programs for people who are homeless in Skagit County by empowering them toward self-sufficiency. The VISTA project’s goal is to build existing capacity for emergency and transitional housing services (include the House Café) through the development of a volunteer and apprenticeship recruitment, management and outreach plan. Skagit County is nestled halfway between Seattle, WA and Vancouver, BC and just east of the San Juan Islands offering access to the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Fans of the outdoors will love our little corner of the world as hiking, kayaking, river rafting, 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.
