NYIC VISTA @ Open Buffalo
 
 
 
This position is part of the NYIC VISTA program, which is run by the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) and places AmeriCorps VISTAs – referred to as NYIC VISTAs – at nonprofit organizations where they build organizational capacity through community outreach/education, communications, fundraising, program development and/or volunteer management projects. The capacity that they build is then used by their host organizations to advance their work on providing community members with anti-poverty services (e.g., ESL/ESOL, legal, youth, employment/career). NYIC VISTAs are supported by the NYIC with a 4-day training at the beginning of their year of service, a 3-day mid-year training, a 3-day spring training, weekly webinars, monthly check-ins with NYIC staff, and ongoing networking opportunities. During their year of service, NYIC VISTAs are supported with benefits including but not limited to living allowance, healthcare allowance or a health plan, a year-end education award or cash stipend, and more. To learn more about VISTA benefits, please visit https://www.vistacampus.gov/in-service/benefits-service. NYIC VISTA positions are full-time 12-month positions that are scheduled to begin on September 3, 2019. The NYIC, www.nyic.org, aims to unite immigrants, Members (i.e., nonprofit organizations) and allies so all New Yorkers can thrive. The NYIC envisions a New York State that is stronger because all people are welcome, treated fairly, and given the chance to pursue their dreams.
