United Way of Escambia County brings together agencies, businesses, organizations, faith-based groups, government and individuals to focus on the community problems that matter most. Its mission is uniting our community and leveraging resources to improve lives. VISTA Leader must have prior service experience through either a full term of VISTA, NCCC, AmeriCorps State and National, or the Peace Corps. The VISTA Leader will assist in leading a team of 11 VISTAs assigned to various projects across Escambia County. The primary responsibilities of the VISTA Leader is to provide support to VISTA members, develop and establish VISTA infrastructure and community awareness, and to coordinate service events. The VISTA Leader plays a supportive role in the recruiting, mentoring, and coordinating of AmeriCorps VISTA members. The VISTA Leader will report to the National Service Manager and work closely with VISTA ALIGNS members to ensure the success of the AmeriCorps grant.

VISTA ALIGNS is a group of nonprofit partner agencies in Escambia County, Florida that have committed to identifying and implementing capacity building measures that improve the lives of those in poverty. The mission of the VISTA ALIGNS program is to stabilize the health and financial stability of families in our community who struggle to overcome deficits in education and opportunity. United Way of Escambia County works directly with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to place AmeriCorps VISTA members at VISTA ALIGNS partner agencies, such as Achieve Escambia, to fulfill this mission.
