AmeriCorps VISTA for BBHCC
July 13, 2017
At Bucksport Bay Healthy Communities Coalition, we are in the market for an AmeriCorps VISTA for the upcoming year to work as a volunteer coordinator for our programs. In case you are not familiar with VISTA, it is a program to work towards eradicating poverty, originating with President Johnson’s Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. It is similar to the Peace Corps for domestic programs.
The individual in that position gets a bird’s-eye view into all aspects of managing a small organization, including management, finances, and marketing. Moreover, there are a lot of benefits to becoming a VISTA: the members learn how to address poverty, about non-profit work, and the VISTA program provides them with plenty of training.
