Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Spokane County United Way - AmeriCorps VISTA Program

Support VISTA members, develop service storytelling infrastructure, and highlight the impact of AmeriCorps service for Spokane County United Way’s VISTA Program!

Note: This is a full-time, one-year volunteer opportunity in partnership with AmeriCorps and S pokane County United Way. All interested parties must apply via the My AmeriCorps portal to be considered for this role: https://my.americorps.gov/mp/listing/viewListing.do?fromSearch=true&id=111943.

Responsibilities:

  • Support VISTA Members throughout their year of service: lead monthly one-on-one conversations with each member, plan and facilitate group personal and professional development activities, and build community within the VISTA member cohort
  • Research best practices for equitable storytelling in community-engaged work, which will help them create guidelines, processes, and resources for capturing and sharing the stories of VISTA projects and their stakeholders
  • Plan National Service Days and AmeriCorps Week activities to strengthen feelings of belonging within the VISTA member cohort and create opportunities to highlight service stories
  • Support the recruitment of new projects and members for the 2023-2024 program year

Project Description:

This project is supervised by Spokane County United Way (SCUW), which aims to provide safe homes free of child abuse, neglect, and domestic violence; increase high school graduation rates for every student in our community; and prevent hunger and homelessness in Spokane through partnership and collaboration. SCUW has been an intermediary sponsor for the AmeriCorps VISTA Program since 2014 and supports up to 14 projects focused on health, education, and economic opportunity throughout Spokane County. The goal of this project is to build the capacity of SCUW’s VISTA Program by developing resources and infrastructure to capture, curate, and distribute the stories of VISTA members, their projects, their host sites, and their impact in the community. We believe that by building our potential to tell these stories, we will be better able to foster a culture of service within our community, expanding the Program’s ability to fight poverty.
