CoF United Way Volunteer Center Coordinator VISTA
The United Way of the Tanana Valley connects people with resources to achieve a strong, flourishing community. One of the ways the United Way assists the community is through volunteer coordination. Historically Fairbanks has had a thriving pool of volunteers and countless volunteer opportunities. The community focus on helping fellow community members has earned Fairbanks the nickname “The Golden Heart City”. Unfortunately, there is not a consolidated method for connecting the volunteers and projects, but the United Way’s Volunteer Action Center (VAC) could solve that problem. The VAC is designed to combat poverty by connecting volunteers with service opportunities. The VAC’s model is based on the Hands On Network and the VAC will serve as a consolidated resource for both the community’s volunteers and the service projects. The VAC will promote volunteer opportunities that produce tangible benefits for the community. This is a volunteer service position with a living allowance of $1,333 per month and an annual education award of $6,095.
