The University YMCA seeks two full-time VISTA Members who will build infrastructure of our immigrant and student programs, develop partnerships within our community, and investigate and develop new possible resources to support these programs. VISTAs will develop leadership skills in fundraising, program development, volunteer coordination, nonprofit management and more.
One VISTA will focus on our New American Welcome Center work and help build capacity for our immigrant outreach services. The other VISTA will focus on our YMCA student programs. Applicants are welcome to apply to one or both.
VISTAs serve for one full year and have access to fantastic benefits through the Americorps program (click here for more information), including a living allowance (approximately $1000 a month in Champaign County), relocation allowance if you move 50+ miles, an end-of-service award of either $5,815 for education expenses or a cash stipend of $1,500, healthcare benefits, professional development trainings and more.
The YMCA hopes to start VISTAs as soon as possible this summer, but actual start date depends on the training schedule of the AmeriCorps program. DEADLINE EXTENDED. For full consideration, please apply by June 2, 2017.
