November 2017-2018 AmeriCorps VISTA Member Application is Open!

If you would like to build the capacity of your Club and create and improve programs to better serve more youth in your community then an AmeriCorps VISTA member could be a fantastic addition to your Club! AmeriCorps VISTA members (Volunteers in service to America) serve a term of 1-year and the value of a VISTA member in 2015 was estimated to be $23.56/hour and for 40 hours a week that’s $49,004 a year at no cost to your Club!

The Boys & Girls Clubs in Indian Country AmeriCorps VISTA Project has been helping Boys & Girls Clubs all over the country to implement cultural programs, recruit additional staff, increase their positive impact on the community, and build strategic relationships with businesses since 1994.

We understand that it can be hard to implement all of the projects you know will make a great impact in your community due to a lack of resources and staff. With the help of an AmeriCorps VISTA member these projects can move from idea to reality! That’s why we think you should apply!

The online application to host VISTA members from November 2017 - November 2018 is now open, and the deadline is Wednesday, May 10 at 11:59pm EDT.

More Information:

You can register for the informational webinar about the application process on Tuesday, April 25 at 3:00pm EDT here.
