Opportunity to Host AmeriCorps*VISTA Member for Veterans & Military Family Programming
The Maine VISTA Project is seeking nonprofit organizations and public agency partners to develop or expand community services for veterans and military families. The Maine VISTA Project will offer local programs an opportunity to host a full-time AmeriCorps*VISTA member for one-year starting in November 2011. The local agency will be required to develop a work plan focused on services for veterans and military families. The Maine VISTA Project is particularly interested in services related to health, education, employment, transportation in rural areas, and support to families of active duty military personnel.
AmeriCorps*VISTA is a national service program designed specifically to fight poverty through the capacity-building activities of VISTA members. Organizations should expect to operate any programs developed using other resources after two or three years.
A one-hour, informational webinar on the opportunity will be offered Thursday, August 25 from 9-10 AM. Please click here to register for the webinar. Questions may be directed to Meredith Eaton at (207)624-6231 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
