Strong City VISTA Program recruiting AmeriCorps VISTAs

Strong City Baltimore serves as the VISTA Project Sponsor to nonprofits, government, and community organizations throughout Baltimore City and Maryland. We provide support to the site and the VISTA member throughout the year, including recruitment, training, professional development opportunities, and resources. Our mission is to build and strengthen neighborhoods and people, and one of the many ways we do that is through our VISTA program.

Our AmeriCorps VISTA program has 26 openings for positions to begin service this July. AmeriCorps VISTA is a great opportunity for anyone who is passionate about service, looking to transition careers, motivated to serve their community, and for recent grads to gain hands-on professional experience while working to eradicate poverty in America! VISTAs, or Volunteers in Service to America, commit a year of their lives to build capacity for an organization to deliver more services to people living in poverty and create sustainable change. Several of our positions are with STEM programs, community schools, government agencies and local nonprofit organizations.

Applications are due May 15, 2016.
