**** THIS POSITION IS A ONE YEAR, FULL-TIME PAID VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT THROUGH AMERICORPS. ****

San Antonio Clubhouse is a community-oriented non-profit organization in San Antonio, TX whose mission is to provide community, opportunity and hope for adults diagnosed with mental illness using the evidence-based Clubhouse recovery model. This model of recovery supports adults by providing opportunities for our members to build relationships with others, and work towards their goals while contributing to the Clubhouse community. Our Clubhouse strives to be a direct reflection of the needs of our members and the abilities of our members and staff and does so through a variety of programmatic offerings, including but not limited to: our Clubhouse Career Program, which provides employment support to our members through job search assistance, resume help, mock interviews, and employer advocacy; a Nutrition and Wellness Program, which provides low-cost, subsidized, nutritious meals and snacks to members, physical wellness activities, and educational workshops; and Hydroponic Urban Growth (HUG), which operates a hydroponic farm capable of producing literal tons of vegetables per year.

To ensure the success of our Employment Program, which connects adults with mental health conditions to meaningful work, the VISTA will create sustainable employment solutions on both ends of the hiring spectrum by helping to develop a work-readiness assessment, as well as identifying and reaching out to prospective employers to coordinate meetings and presentations.

Mission Statement

The Literacy Coalition breaks the cycle of intergenerational poverty through comprehensive literacy services. VISION: We envision a community that is 100 percent literate, employable and self-sufficient. STRATEGY: The core strategy of the organization is to embed its high-quality, proven programming in the business, education and workforce sectors outside of the K-12 system to end the intergenerational cycle of poverty and illiteracy. Programs and services are designed to deepen the impact of local nonprofits, strengthen the business workforce, and build stronger communities..

Description

In 2001, a wide network of literacy providers and community leaders founded the Literacy Coalition of Central Texas in response to the need for a centralized location for literacy services.

By embedding its high-quality programming in the business, healthcare and nonprofit sectors, the Literacy Coalition helps strengthen the business workforce, bolster nonprofit programs and build stronger communities.
