AmeriCorps VISTA Opportunities
United Way of Central Iowa is working with the Corporation for National and Community Service to sponsor four AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers. AmeriCorps VISTA Members along with employees in the organization will work together and with donors, volunteers, board of directors, corporate partners and area non-profit organizations to bring UWCI's mission to life “to improve lives by uniting the caring power of our community.”
AmeriCorps VISTA provides full-time members to community organizations and public agencies to create and expand programs that build capacity and ultimately bring low-income individuals and communities out of poverty. AmeriCorps VISTA is part of the Corporation for National and Community Service. Their mission is to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering.
AmeriCorps VISTA members:
o Serve full-time for one year
o Receive a modest monthly living allowance
o Are eligible for a $5,550 Education Award or a $1,500 cash stipend upon successful completion of service
