SerVermont

About the organization

SerVermont is Vermont’s State Service Commission. Our mission is to support, promote and recognize volunteerism and community service in Vermont.

The SerVermont VISTA Project is a comprehensive umbrella project that welcomes host sites tackling a wide array of poverty related issues in Vermont. We place members in organizations and state agencies to fight poverty across the state by increasing education and job-training opportunities, creating more food-secure communities, increasing safe and affordable housing, and fighting the opioid epidemic.

SerVermont is part of the Vermont Agency of Human Services, and national service is the means through which we work on the agency’s mission to improve the health and well-being of Vermonters today and tomorrow, and to protect those among us who are unable to protect themselves.

Duties

The SerVermont VISTA project seeks to fight poverty throughout the state using a comprehensive approach including sites ranging from regional planning commissions and state agencies to non-profit organizations that focus on housing, job training, public health, the digital divide, and food security.

The VISTA Leader plays an integral role in our larger VISTA program by providing support and professional development to our 35-member team.

Duties include:
- Organize professional development training for members
- Support and coach members, and conduct team-building activities
- Coordinate MLK Day of Service activities
- Recruit members for next cohort, facilitate application process

Just as AmeriCorps VISTA members work to expand and build the capacity of community projects, Leaders work to expand and build the capacity of individual AmeriCorps VISTA members and their respective service sites. Leaders have demonstrated leadership skills and qualities during their initial term(s) of service and have accepted a new level of responsibility.
