AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) members go where the need is greatest: to communities facing poverty, inequity, and unemployment. Nourish Pierce County's award winning mobile food banks are semi-trucks that have been converted into full-service food banks on wheels. The Summer Associate VISTA will support the mobile food bank distribution at 26 area distribution sites weekly, including schools, low income neighborhoods, community & technical colleges and even the local children's hospital. Once parked, the managers and Summer Associate VISTA will ensure a warm and welcoming environment for customers to "shop" and provides a positive working environment for volunteers.

Serve Your Community. Start Your Career. Join the Greater South Sound VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) Team.
Greater South Sound VISTAs serve in the offices of our region’s public and nonprofit agencies, guided by the four Key Principles of VISTA Service: End Poverty, Build Capacity, Empower Communities, and Create Sustainable Solutions. Our Host Sites (the agencies hosting VISTAs) are spread across the Greater South Sound region, not only in Thurston County but also in Pierce, Thurston, Grays Harbor, Mason, Lewis, Jefferson, and Clallam Counties.
We’re looking for applicants of all ages, from all backgrounds, who are passionate about social justice and economic equity, self motivated, and team oriented. With VISTA, you choose where you submit your application - select the Host Sites that you’re the most passionate about. Each Host Site creates an individualized VISTA Assignment Description (VAD) to plan out the VISTA’s upcoming Year of Service, so each VISTA position is unique. Some VADs involve being out in the community regularly, whereas others might involve a lot of time in the office analyzing data or designing a website. Sample responsibilities listed in recent VADs include: developing trainings for food bank volunteers, revising policies for a shelter, creating a public awareness campaign to prevent human trafficking, writing grants for a free childcare program, and more.
