VISTA Team Leader

Arizona Serve

About the organization

Arizona Serve was created in 2006 when several Yavapai County service providers saw a need to build collaboration among AmeriCorps VISTA members and their projects. Today, Serve is housed in Prescott College and currently places twenty-six AmeriCorps VISTA members with twenty-three organizations and projects across Yavapai County and Pima County. Arizona Serve acts as a mentor to other National Service Projects, and seeks to bring its collaborative model of service to regions across Arizona.

The Arizona Serve VISTA Team Leader will work closely with Arizona Serve staff, and other Team Leaders to support VISTA members in Prescott during the upcoming VISTA year. The VISTA Leader position is an excellent opportunity for someone who is passionate about addressing poverty and enjoys working with a diverse and dynamic team.
