The CCSNE VISTA position will be housed on the Greenfield Community College (GCC) campus and report directly to the Associate Dean of Student Development. The VISTA will be charged with identifying and expanding support for students in recovery from substance abuse disorders who are enrolled at GCC. The VISTA will conduct outreach to prospective students in recovery, work with current partners (The Opioid Task Force and the Recovery Project) while exploring additional partnerships, and researching best practices for working with/supporting students in recovery and addressing barriers to retention (economic and housing stability, food insecurity, legal issues and family relationships).

The VISTA position is being leveraged to deepen the program, expand outreach and increase participation in the program. The biweekly living allowance for this position is $472.22 in Franklin County, MA. In addition to the benefits listed, the host site will provide the following: fitness center pass, public transportation pass, access to free or reduced courses, conference attendance, and other professional development opportunities. The AmeriCorps VISTA serving at Greenfield Community College will be part of a dynamic, motivated corps. Serving as a part of the Campus Compact VISTA corps provides VISTAs the chance to connect with corps members throughout multiple states, to create a network of support, and to share resources. Campus Compact supports the professional and personal growth of VISTA members through a variety of professional development opportunities and in-person trainings throughout their service year.
