HandsOn VISTA - City of Phoenix Makers Space
 
 
 
Serve with the City of Phoenix Housing Department as a part of the HandsOn VISTA Team! ABOUT THE SITE AND THE ROLE: See ‘Members Duties’ section below. ABOUT HandsOn Greater Phoenix: For nearly 25 years, HandsOn Greater Phoenix has worked with nonprofits, Title I schools, neighborhood associations and government entities to assess and meet the volunteer needs of the Greater Phoenix area. The HandsOn VISTA program supports 20 VISTA members at multiple placement sites across the valley. Our VISTA members enable our community service partners to expand capacity and build lasting infrastructure by creating the processes and tools needed to effectively access and utilize valuable resources. HandsOn VISTA members will improve their own capacity for leading communities during and beyond their terms of service by developing their knowledge, skills, and abilities related to volunteer mobilization, civic engagement, and other areas. In addition to the site-specific work of the individual role all of our VISTA members: participate in 2 AmeriCorps National Days of Service, lead projects at 2 HandsOn community service days, attend monthly VISTA team trainings with the other HandsOn VISTA members, and lead a monthly community volunteering opportunity. APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED ON A ROLLING BASIS UNTIL FILLED. PLEASE APPLY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE FOR BEST CONSIDERATION!
