OneStar:Lone Star Veterans Association Careers Program VISTA
Do you have a passion for working with veterans? Have you or a close family member served our country in the Armed Forces? Lone Star Veterans Association (LSVA) is the largest membership organization for post-9/11 veterans in Texas. 1 in 12 of these veterans are members with LSVA in Houston. We are looking for a dynamic VISTA to help build capacity for our organization so we can continue to build on our previous success and grow statewide. This is your opportunity to be part of a new type of veteran service organization launching highly successful veterans into the next phase of their personal and professional lives. This role requires self motivation and drive, but also has the reward of working with some of our country’s finest and seeing the impact that they make in the community for others.
