The Texas Association of Charitable Clinics VISTA Program seeks to place members who are committed to national service and public health in the clinics throughout Texas that are dedicated to providing quality healthcare services to low-income individuals. VISTA Program members will be provided with on-going support and training, as well as invaluable experience in the healthcare field.
At TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries, the first year VISTA will establish new infrastructure surrounding the existing volunteer outreach program, as well as develop strategies to enhance the current system. The VISTA will identify potential changes to TOMAGWA’s outreach strategy regarding prospecting of potential volunteers using print and digital media. Member activities include performing interviews and surveys of current volunteers and recruitment partners, researching other successful programs and sites and adapting their strategies as needed, developing operational policies and procedures for the volunteer program such as recruitment strategies and processes, and designing a streamlined orientation process for onboarding new volunteers.
