AmeriCorps VISTA Member/AmeriCorps VISTA Leader

AmeriCorps VISTA

About the organization

AmeriCorps VISTA is a national program that places members and leaders in organizations that serve people in need. Members serving in the AmeriCorps VISTA program serve full time for one-year terms. They build capacity in nonprofit organizations and public agencies to help them more effectively generate the commitment of private sector resources, encourage volunteer service at the local level, and empower individuals and communities. Leaders work to expand and build the capacity of individual members serving in the AmeriCorps VISTA program at their service sites. Leaders have previously served a full term of full-time service with any AmeriCorps program or with Peace Corps and have demonstrated exemplary skills and leadership in community service. Members are eligible for a living allowance, end-of-service stipend, professional development opportunities, and more.

Duties

We are currently recruiting for AmeriCorps VISTA members and an AmeriCorps VISTA Leader for our VISTA cohort. ASU Survivor Link is a program within the Office of Gender-Based Violence at Arizona State University (ASU). Survivor Link VISTA members will serve in a cohort of fellow VISTA members placed at sites throughout ASU and the Arizona community with a common goal of ending domestic violence and promoting healthy relationships. Each VISTA member will be placed at an organization that best fits the background and goals of both the member and the organization. Each VISTA member will learn about safety planning, survivor-centered and trauma-informed care, risk assessment, and evidence-based practice and interventions. VISTAs will attend regular meetings at ASU including professional development, networking, and expert training. VISTA members serve in a professional setting building partnerships, supporting alliances, and organizing volunteers. Above all, VISTA members are catalysts for change, working to advance local solutions to end domestic violence. Our AmeriCorps service program, Survivor Link, offers unique opportunities for college graduates or professionals to spend one year giving service and learning about domestic violence interventions.
