About

The goal of this VISTA project is to develop and implement a recruitment and on-boarding plan to increase the number of individual and group volunteers who serve at the Restores, which will, in turn, raise more money that will help build more affordable homes. Project objectives include: 1) Research volunteer operations with other HFH affiliates and other nonprofits in order to discover effective recruiting and retention strategies. 2) Survey current ReStore volunteers to better understand motivation of both short and long term volunteer. 3) Based on research, beta test new and improved recruitment and retention processes and procedures. 4) create a formal recommendation report given to ReStore and Volunteer Department personnel regarding improvements in recruitment and on-boarding volunteers.

Interviews are done on a rolling basis. Please submit application as soon as possible to ensure consideration. Selection may be made before deadline date posted.
Benefits

In addition to the monthly living stipend, VISTA members who complete their year of service may choose either the Education Award of $5,920 or an End of Service stipend of $1,800. Members may also qualify for relocation benefits. ( http://www.vistacampus.gov/in-service/benefits-service )

About HFH Wisconsin VISTA Program

Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live . Nearly 20% of Wisconsin residents pay more than 50% of their family income for housing. With an increasing need for affordable housing in our state, our 37 affiliates are working hard to address that need by partnering with low-income families to build, rehab or repair homes. The Habitat for Humanity of Wisconsin AmeriCorps VISTA program’s goal is to strengthen affiliates and increase their capacity. With passion, commitment, and hard work our VISTA members help affiliates as they bring individuals and communities out of poverty. ( http://www.habitatwisconsin.org/vista )
