As experienced VISTAs, VISTA Leaders support and mentor VISTAs both professionally and personally in a range of roles (ambassador, recruiter, liaison, education, mentor, and resource generator). This VISTA Leader position supports the UGA VISTA Network, its AmeriCorps VISTAs, sites and stakeholders to build capacity, fight poverty and enhance connections between the University of Georgia and the Athens, GA community. With a focus on food insecurity and waste, sustainability and educational initiatives, the UGA VISTA Network includes year-long VISTAs and/or summer associates placed at middle schools in Clarke and Barrow Counties, Athens Regional Library, Athens Community Council on Aging, College Factory, Clarke County Mentor Program, and on campus (Campus Kitchen-UGA, UGArden, and Foodshed UGA). The VISTA Leader provides assistance, resources, training, and coordination of the VISTAs in collaboration with their site placements, another VISTA Leader, and the UGA Office of Service-Learning (administrative home for the VISTA Network). Specific objectives and activities include developing understanding of local community and campus resources; determining, developing and delivering appropriate training in support of VISTAs and their VADs; communicating and meeting regularly with VISTA members individually and in groups and with sites and supervisors; assisting with program compliance, reporting, and documentation; assisting with VISTA publicity, recruitment, retention, and transitions; and providing general support to the UGA VISTA Network and its stakeholders.
