VISTA positions with the IRC in Silver Spring
The IRC in Silver Spring is recruiting now for Year 2 of our dynamic AmeriCorps VISTA projects!
Thirty-seven million Americans live in poverty. Through AmeriCorps VISTA, you can make a tangible difference. And, you’ll find the fulfillment that comes from using your knowledge and skills to help those in disadvantaged circumstances turn their dreams into reality.
AmeriCorps VISTA is the national service program designed specifically to fight poverty. Founded as Volunteers in Service to America in 1965 and incorporated into the AmeriCorps network of programs in 1993, VISTA has been on the front lines in the fight against poverty in America for more than 40 years.
VISTA members commit to serve full-time for a year at a nonprofit organization or local government agency, working to fight illiteracy, improve health services, create businesses, strengthen community groups, and much more. With passion, commitment, and hard work, you’ll create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.
Working with our Immigration program on Community Outreach initiatives, or with our Public Health program as a health promotion and outreach specialist, you will help the IRC team to expand its capacity to serve and enhance existing projects.
